I’ve been silent on the forums lately but stumbled upon this article the other day and had to share it. Is this the future home standard, as green-building takes the main stage?
Link to full article here:

The prototype townhouses stand in Roxbury at 226 Highland Street. Built by Boston’s E+ Green Building the homes feature spacious living areas, 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The design followed a pilot initiation to entice and develop energy positive green building in the greater Boston area. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) listed the prototype as one of the Top Ten Green Projects* following a national assessment by the Institute’s Committee on the Environment (COTE).
It is great to see this kind of innovation coming from the city I’m from! I am excited to see the continued growth and evolution of the green building industry, are you?

*A national distinction awarded annually to the top ten examples of sustainable architecture and ecological design that protect and enhance surrounding environments.

Nice post, Steven, and congratulations to the E+ Program. I hope to be able to see the townhouses sometime soon. COTE Top 10 is a big deal - maybe we will post this in the MA Green Builders Group, too as some local news.
