Othello Square Building D is one of four initial pilot projects in Housing Development Consortium’s Exemplary Buildings Program. The Exemplary Buildings pilot is a regional collaborative effort working to create healthy, safe housing that is both affordable and ultra-efficient - while maximizing housing units produced. Project teams achieve this goal through the use of performance standards and building practices that reduce the overall premium (the additional costs of implementing ultra-efficiency) to the point where the premium can be financed through the operational savings generated by ultra-efficiency.
