Hosting company Sustainable Comfort, Inc. will be leading this event and discussing the design and construction process and the unique features implemented to balance efficiency and affordability.

The project consists of 12 buildings with 8 units per building for a total of 96 units in the project. It is Phase I of a 4 phase project with mostly affordable and some market rate apartments.
