Riverwalk Point II is a model green community that demonstrates the feasibility of constructing affordable housing with sustainable design principles. A host of sustainable features are incorporated into the project’s mixture of flats, town-homes, and community space including straw-bale exterior walls, a net-metered solar electrical system and solar pre-heated hot water. Among other features, the community building includes offices for service providers to meet with residents. Twenty percent of the apartments are reserved for families recovering from homelessness, another twenty percent for families affected by disability, and an additional twenty percent for large families.
