RENTAL HOUSING DEVELOPMENT | LIMITED EQUITY CO-OP | HOMEOWNERSHIP | PIPELINE PROJECTS | COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT | GREEN DEVELOPMENT | LEVEDO: SOLAR PANELS


The Levedo Building represents the latest effort by CSNDC to produce “green” sustainable real estate developments.  Levedo achieved a preliminary Gold rating under the LEED (Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design) for Homes Mid-Rise rating system.   The final rating will be issued upon construction completion.  Green highlights at Levedo are:


- Photovoltaic System:  64 solar panels generating 19,570 KWH annually of power for the common electric load (about 25% of projected total load).

- Energy Efficiency:  Continuous rigid insulation; cellulose insulation; efficient, properly-sized heating and cooling equipment.

- Ventilation:   All units have direct vented supply air; an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) exchanges heat between toilet and kitchen exhaust and supply air vented into each of the units; all units are “compartmentalized” to air migration between units; all common areas are smoke free. 

- Rainwater Irrigation:  A 3000 gallon cistern collects rainwater runoff from the building for irrigation of all vegetation on site.

- Stormwater Management:  A “cultec” system retains maximum amount of rain / storm water on site.

- Location:  Within LEED proximity standards to public transportation and other amenities.

- Miscellaneous:  Drought tolerant plants; high efficiency fixtures and appliances; use of FSC certified wood and low VOC paints, adhesives and sealants.

An independent energy modeling study (Demand Management Institute, May 2010) predicts that Levedo will use 34% less energy, and will incur 28% less energy cost, as compared to the standard “baseline” model.
