Living building challenge
The Rose is a 90-unit mixed-income apartment project, part of a multiphase redevelopment project that includes 47 affordable units and 43 market-rate units in a two building configuration. The Rose is also an example of an ambitious effort to build sustainably, and the developer has set out to meet many of the stringent sustainability standards of the Living Building Challenge within three to five years of opening. Unlike many sustainable buildings, the Rose kept overall construction costs generally in line with comparable affordable housing projects. The Rose succeeds at balancing the aspirational requirements of green building with the need to be cost-efficient and replicable across the affordable housing industry.
