Northampton, MA – A special event, hosted by Northampton Mayor David Narkewicz, will mark the completion of the first Flats West Building as part of Wright Builders’ continuing signature LEED and ENERGY STAR developments at Village Hill Northampton.
A Ribbon Cutting for Flats West, 50% occupied, will take place at September 24, 2015, 3:00pm at 74 Village Hill Road. Brief remarks will include comments from the Mayor, Representatives of Mass Development, two residents at this location, and others. There will be an opportunity to tour the building and view the model home.
Immediately following the Ribbon Cutting will be a Ground Breaking for Flats East, a companion building across the street, already well into pre-sales. Both Buildings were handsomely designed in the Arts and Crafts style by Kuhn Riddle Architects, with site and landscape design by Berkshire Design Group.
With just six homes per building, each floor has two residences that feature light and ventilation on three sides, comparable to a single family home. Further, these unique buildings provide basement or proximal garage parking, full elevator access, balconies or patios, designated secured and conditioned storage, and deeded roof top solar locations, along with anticipated LEED Gold certification and Federal ENERGY STAR Certification. Super high efficiency Mitsubishi Hyper-Heat technology, along with a very high performance building envelope, sophisticated systems, gas cooking, gas on-demand water heating, triple glazing, fire suppression, and advanced acoustic isolation all add up to something never available before in the region.
Jonathan Wright, co-principal of Wright Builders, comments “the design and construction of these homes is all about the comfort, privacy, and convenience of the owners, while encouraging community and conversation in common areas. This high quality and well-appointed lifestyle is set in the context of award winning sustainability practices. Lobby areas feature striking art and artisanal pieces reflecting local talent.”
Wright Builders Inc. continues its trend setting leadership commitment to Northampton and sustainability with this project, enroute to a 2017 completion of what will be 56 homes at Village Hill since 2008.
Flats West is complete and ready for occupancy. Flats East will start construction very shortly, and is planned for October 2016 completion.
