Philadelphia just gave the go-ahead for a large mixed-use multi-family housing project that is urban friendly and energy frugal. Conceived by design/build group Onion Flats, The Ridge’ will be the largest Passive House project in the region – and perhaps the country – meaning that the residences will use 90% less energy than standard apartments. The proposal will also be Net Zero Energy and will take advantage of solar technologies to supplement its already low energy demands. Alternative transportation will be encouraged by providing covered bike parking, Zipcars, and reducing parking spaces. Vegetated roofs and greenscape will frame the plentiful public spaces within, encouraging community interaction.
