Curbed Seattle – September 2016
In 2015, Dwell Development and Caron Architecture upped the green building game when they unveiled Seattle’s first Built Green Emerald Star house in Ballard. The 2,218-square-foot house, which they dubbed the Emerald Star, sold for $850K last August. When it came to fulfilling the vigorous standards required in order to meet Emerald Star certification, Dwell could’ve just assumed we’d take their word for it. Instead, they decided to provide an update one year later to prove just how effective this construction has been at creating a net zero living environment.
