About a month ago, we featured Concourse E's green home in Atlanta on 81 Weatherby, but Concourse E also developed the neighboring parcel with two townhomes.  Like 81, 85 and 89 Weatherby are both posh, modern, and green — just the way we like them.  85 is going for $524,500, while 89 is going for $529,500, which is roughly $170 per square foot.  For that, you get three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and a large list of green features:

    Solar power (3.3 KW solar PV system)Solar hot waterUltra high efficiency 19 SEER HVACSoy-based spray foam insulationHigh efficiency aluminum-clad windowsExtremely insulated and sealed building envelopeVegetated wallNon-toxic termite/mold/allergen controlSteel constructionCaeserStone countertops throughoutBosch Energy Star appliancesDual-flush Caroma toiletsSustainable bamboo flooringLow VOC paints and adhesivesLow maintenance / zero water requirement landscaping70-95% energy cost savings

One of the most difficult aspects of dense living, I believe, is shared walls and noisy neighbors, but Concourse E has mitigated that with a three inch air gap between double insulated walls.  The two townhomes are, in reality, only connected in the front, rear, and top of the structure — a design element that will end up benefitting the owners many times over. 

Also, you may be interested in knowing that the power bill at 85 and 89 Weatherby for the month of February was $4.  Not bad …
