An urban neighborhood incorporates energy-efficient and sustainable materials to build zero-carbon, single-family homes, townhomes, and lofts.
Grow Community is an urban neighborhood on Bainbridge Island, just a 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle. The community is one of five in the world — and second in the United States — to start construction on sustainable homes using the One Planet Living® principles as a framework for building healthy, vital communities. The Grow Community features a combination of 22 zero-carbon, single-family homes, townhomes, and lofts in pocket neighborhoods. Each of Grow Community’s 5-Star Built Green homes feature an energy-efficient design that incorporates building materials that meet or exceed the project’s high standards for energy efficiency and sustainability.
A key goal for developers was to eliminate vinyl-based materials from the project. After considering two competitors, Marvin Elevate® Casement and Direct Glaze Polygon windows and Swinging French doors were selected to meet Grow Community’s rigid building specifications and sustainability standards. Elevate windows and doors are made from Ultrex® fiberglass, which outlasts and outperforms vinyl and vinyl/wood composites with superior energy efficiency.
