Nove — Italian for nine — is a handsome nine-unit project in the Mission District of San Francisco. The green project features LEED Platinum certification and architectural design by Handel Architects. And, with purchase prices in the range of $975,000 – $1,600,000, eight of nine units have already sold and closed, according to Builder Magazine.
For energy efficiency, Nove has double-glazed AlumaTherm windows, Energy Star appliances, and blown-in insulation, while the exterior is completed with a modern blend of ipe, aluminum, steel, stucco, and HardiePlank.
Units have in-floor radiant floors powered in part by water collected from rooftop solar panels. Architect Glenn Rescalvo, partner at Handel Architects, told Builder Magazine that the combination solar hot water and high efficiency boiler system is projected to reduce hot water and space heating costs by about 63%.
Nove was completed in March 2010 with units from 1,200 – 1,600 square feet. The project was built on adjacent lots with a common green space running the center.
