Building Green - Making Affordable Housing More Affordable
Event Description

Better Quality. High Performance. Healthy Housing. High Standard.

Are these words that come to mind when you think of affordable housing? If not, this webinar will help you understand why they should be.

Join this webinar for a deep dive into Willow Creek Phases I & II, an urban, LEED Gold certified affordable housing development in the Blue Hills neighborhood of Hartford, CT.

The redevelopment of the inefficient and decrepit 1950s barrack-style housing project, Bowles Park, is aimed at enhancing the quality of life for mixed-income residents through the incorporation of green building design measures. Driven by funding source goals and increased developer awareness, green building design raises the bar for affordable developments. The green-affordable duo delivers healthy, efficient and low-utility, low-maintenance housing; minimizing the impact to the local ecosystem, and strengthening community through contextually appropriate and truly affordable housing.
