Project profile: E+ // 226-232 Highland Street Townhouses
The project was conceived as a replicable prototype for family friendly, energy efficient, urban townhomes. Each unit is approximately 1850-square-feet, with flexible living areas, 3 bedrooms, and 2.5 bathrooms. The project was the first completed under the City of Boston’s Energy Plus (E+) Green Building Program, a pilot initiative to develop energy positive sustainable housing. The project team was chosen through a design competition organized by the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) and the Department of Neighborhood Development. Incorporating both passive and active energy efficiency measures, the project has achieved HERS ratings between 6 and 9, and is certified LEED for Homes Platinum.
