High Performance Affordable Housing: New Developments
Wednesday, Jan 16, 2008
Many banks, housing organizations, and advocates are now requiring that their affordable housing developments be "green". Many definitions of green exist in the marketplace, yet some developers have succeeded in taking off-the-shelf technologies to design buildings that perform exceptionally well - the true hallmark of sustainable design. Some of the buildings featured in this presentation use 65% less heating energy per square foot than the typical multifamily building in NYC. Listen to the experience of developers, bankers, and consultants who have successfully completed high performance green buildings in New York City.
