Eco-nomical and Eco-logical
Eco-housing is a smaller, more efficient version of existing housing types, both apartments and houses. Our business is based on the idea that residents care about price and location more than they do about other amenities, such as apartment size. We build great, small homes in high cost urban locations that are affordable to the people who live and work nearby.
Why residents love eco-housing
The two most important factor renters are price and location. Size is far down the list.
By keeping costs down, we can keep rents down. We aim to provide low income and workforce renters with housing that costs no more than 30% of their annual income.
Small units have a far lower carbon footprint than large ones, contributing to sustainable construction and living.
