Homes Go Green in the OC

Share this on:

green-olson-homes.jpgA new, multi-unit brownstone community was recently constructed just two blocks from quaint Old Towne Orange and the convenient Metrolink in Orange County, California. The new development is the first in the OC to achieve LEED gold certification by meeting green building standards set by the U.S. Green Building Council.

It’s also the first multi-unit housing community to go solar with 50% of its energy to come from the sun. Other green features include sustainable building and finishing materials, from the wood used in construction, to flooring, cabinets, countertops, and paint. Water-conserving fixtures and outdoor landscaping have been utilized. Another nice bonus are the measures incorporated to improve indoor air quality.
