This Is Sustainable Housing, Folks

11006.24.029-22.jpgThis is what we're talking about when we say Sustainable Housing, people. Not just technology but hooking up the right technology to the right uses, in service of creating new communities and connections.  The Eltonia is a New York City housing project that has the city's first roof-mounted wind turbines, is a 100% smoke-free environment, is New York State's first LEED Platinum building that is affordable housing, and is going to house the first ever study of green building on respiratory illness.  Talk about taking LEED for a test drive!

From the press release: "South Bronx has some of the highest rates of childhood asthma in the five New York City boroughs.  The Mt. Sinai study, which has already started with future tenants, will investigate the effect LEED standard green buildings have on respiratory health."

From us: awesome!  And check out those windmills!!
