About a month ago, we featured Concourse E's green home in Atlanta on 81 Weatherby, but Concourse E also developed the neighboring parcel with two townhomes.  Like 81, 85 and 89 Weatherby are both posh, modern, and green — just the way we like them.  85 is going for $524,500, while 89 is going for $529,500, which is roughly $170 per square foot.  For that, you get three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and a large list of green features:


  • Solar power (3.3 KW solar PV system)
  • Solar hot water
  • Ultra high efficiency 19 SEER HVAC
  • Soy-based spray foam insulation
  • High efficiency aluminum-clad windows
  • Extremely insulated and sealed building envelope
  • Vegetated wall
  • Non-toxic termite/mold/allergen control
  • Steel construction
  • CaeserStone countertops throughout
  • Bosch Energy Star appliances
  • Dual-flush Caroma toilets
  • Sustainable bamboo flooring
  • Low VOC paints and adhesives
  • Low maintenance / zero water requirement landscaping
  • 70-95% energy cost savings

One of the most difficult aspects of dense living, I believe, is shared walls and noisy neighbors, but Concourse E has mitigated that with a three inch air gap between double insulated walls.  The two townhomes are, in reality, only connected in the front, rear, and top of the structure — a design element that will end up benefitting the owners many times over. 

Also, you may be interested in knowing that the power bill at 85 and 89 Weatherby for the month of February was $4.  Not bad …
