TOWSON, MD - Bozzuto Homes today announced that Towson Green Homes in Towson, Maryland have been designated to achieve Silver Level homes by the National Green Building Standard™. Silver Level homes are designed to be 30 percent more energy efficient than standard homes, which mean lower utility bills, greater comfort and healthier living for homeowners.
Towson Green is a brand new traditional neighborhood development consisting of 121 for-sale townhomes in the heart of Towson. The National Green Building Standard™ certification comes on the heels of the townhome community earning its ENERGY STAR certification.
The community is built on a previously-developed plot of land, curbing environmental impact and preserving Towson’s existing natural beauty. The homes are being constructed with a tight building envelope and highly energy-efficient materials, both of which minimize gains and losses in adjusting temperature, leading to lower energy bills because heating and cooling the homes requires less energy, explained Bozzuto Homes President Tom Baum.
“Creating a community that is holistically sustainable – from construction to day-to-day energy use – was our first priority,” said Baum, “and Towson Green proves that we can both live green and enjoy a luxury lifestyle.”
Towson Green offers four floor plans, all outfitted with energy-efficient stainless steel appliances, HVAC equipment and low-flow shower heads and faucets. Towson Green’s water conservation efforts save 40 percent more water than comparable non-green communities.
In addition to its energy efficiency and water conservation efforts, Towson Green will also offer an active green participation program for residents upon the community’s completion.
Towson Green is one of the latest projects from Bozzuto Homes, an award-winning Washington D.C. area-based real estate services organization with luxury apartments and homes across the East Coast. The community lies within Baltimore County's Towson Commercial Revitalization District, and as a result, qualifies for a Revitalization Property Tax Credit, a benefit that will save homeowners up to $3,300 annually in taxes. Towson Green townhomes are offered in four different floor plans, all with garages and some with up to four bedrooms, and start in the mid $300's.
Headquartered in the Washington, D.C. area, The Bozzuto Group is a diversified residential real estate company consisting of six integrated companies – Acquisitions, Construction, Development, Homebuilding, Land Development and Property Management – that together provide a broad range of real estate services throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
