The Harmony Greene Townhome Apartments achieved LEED for Homes Gold certification from the US Green Building Council, and is the first project in Pooler to achieve LEED certification. Trident Sustainability Group served as the LEED consultant for the project.
The 50 unit affordable housing project provides a showcase in sustainability. A community-wide geothermal heating and cooling system combined with efficient lighting and insulation provides extremely low utility bills. Water-efficient plumbing fixtures cut water use 40%, and low-VOC paints and finishes help occupants enjoy high indoor air quality. All stormwater is managed on site, and tree preservation and native landscaping surround the project, while a large community garden gives residents an opportunity to grow their own food.
“This project showcase’s both Parallel Housing and The Woda Group commitment to sustainability”, said Tommy Linstroth, Principal of Trident Sustainability Group. “Earn LEED Gold in affordable housing makes quite a statement, and installing a community-wide geothermal loop shows the developers are willing to put their money where their mouth is.”
Harmony Greene was developed by Parallel Housing and The Woda Group. The architect for the project was Pimsler Hoss and the general contractor was Woda Construction.
