Finished 152-165 Highland St. Energy Positive LEED Platinum certified homes

In Boston, we are taking our green building and renewable energy efforts to the next frontier by creating ultra-efficient buildings that generate surplus clean energy. We are demonstrating that energy positive green homes and buildings can be constructed sustainably and cost-effectively, while enhancing the livability and vitality of Boston’s neighborhoods now and into the future.


 

Boston, a national leader in green building, is promoting the next generation of high performance deep green buildings. The E+ Green Building Program will demonstrate the feasibility of regenerative multi-unit residential buildings and bring energy and environmentally positive homes to Boston’s neighborhoods.These proposal submissions show us that regenerative buildings are achievable and not beholden to a particular esthetic.

We are deeply appreciative of the time, expertise, and effort each team has put in their proposal. As evidenced by their vision, creativity and ingenuity, each and every team is a leader in green building design, engineering, and sustainable development.

The initiative continues Boston’s efforts to promote sustainable development and green buildings throughout the City. With the support of NSTAR Electric and National Grid and in partnership with the US Green Building Council, the USGBC Massachusetts Chapter, the Boston Society of Architects and the Boston Architectural College, this initiative is challenging leading architects, engineers, developers, and builders to respond to global climate change and envision a truly sustainable future.

The E+ Program is an initiative of the Boston Environment Department, the Department of Neighborhood Development and the Boston Redevelopment Authority.

Program Partners

The E+ Green Building Demonstration Program is a City of Boston initiative supported by local and national sponsors who will assist with promoting the initiative and recognizing selected submissions for innovations in design and construction that advance the goals of E+ Green Program.
