A development project in east Erie will create 40 new housing units. Once complete, they will have what’s called, ‘The Passive Stamp’.
A passive house is the most energy-efficient way to construct homes. The developer of this project showing the foundation used to build these homes in order to meet the requirements.
The project sitting along 19th and Parade streets will have 40 units along with a community center.
Donald Crenshaw, Developer, tells us, “At the end of the day, for one of these units, as I stated earlier, the actual operating cost with heating and cooling and appliances is approximately $900 annually based on today’s electrical costs.”
The entire development will cost around $12 million and is expected to be complete by next summer.
