LEED Certification (Pending)
The West Town Net Zero Homes are the first LEED (Pending) homes in the Smith Park area! 2440, 2444 and 2446 W. Ohio St. are five-bedroom, three and a half bathroom single-family homes, 4,000 SF each, centrally located in Chicago's West Town neighborhood. This project is pursuing innovation credit for the numerous transit stops in the area; over 300 stops in one day, in addition to its numerous community resources! You can get anywhere in the Chicagoland area from these homes-- without a car.
Each home boasts right-sized 2-stage variable furnaces, 2 energy recovery ventilators, tankless water heaters and 3-5 inches of spray foam throughout the house. These homeowners are sure to experience a quiet, comfortable, healthy indoor living environment, all year round. Additionally, these homes are either PV-ready or have 6KW of Solar Array installed, running to the garage for electric car charging! Low-VOC paints and finishes, low flow water fixtures, fresh air intake and high-end, luxury design... Enjoy it all at a fraction of the cost of ownership in a traditional home.
These homes were featured on the 2015 GreenBuilt Home Tour.
