Green, affordable: the Holy Cross Project houses are up for sale!
From our friends over at Help Holy Cross & the Holy Cross Neighborhood Association:
At last, the sustainably-designed and -built homes at Global Green's Holy Cross Project (corner of Douglass & Andry) are on the market! Holy Cross Neighborhood resident and realtor Marna David is working with the non-profit organization to see these wonderful properties on the levee. Here's what she says:
"Four of Global Green's 21st Century Shotgun Homes are ready for sale and you could call one of them home. Two are single story, two are two-storied and all are economical in their use of space and energy. The open floor plans provide a feel of spaciousness. Give yourself the double pleasure of living in one of the first LEED Platinum rated homes in New Orleans, and, at the same time, take in the park-like levee every time you look out your front window. With solar panels, ENERGY STAR appliances and applied green building techniques, these unique homes offer some of the most affordable and enjoyable living to be had. Come sit in one of these houses for 10 minutes and feel the difference that a people-friendly, non-toxic environment can offer. And. Call the energetic Historic Holy Cross Neighborhood home!"
