I’m in Huntington Beach this weekend taking a little r&r and didn’t realize how much of the housing here is built like the townhomes above: with an urban feel — tightly together with at least 2-3 levels.  These townhouses are located on 19th Street in Santa Monica and called Green on 19.  Three are already sold with the remaining two ready to go.  Green on 19 was designed by Jesse Bornstein to provide modern living while supporting the global community’s need for energy efficiency. 

Bornstein designed Green on 19 with a slew of green features including some of the following:

    Energy Star new home qualificationBamboo and polished concrete flooringEnergy Star Viking kitchen and Bosch dishwasherHigh-efficiency freon AC systemBamboo cabinetryEcosmart fireplacesToto dual-flush toilets100% urban runoff mitigationElectronically controlled skylightHigh-efficiency water heater with recirculating pumpXeriscape landscape plantings with drip irrigationSolar power with state-of-the-art translucent modulesDual-glazed windows that provide abundant natural light and ventilation

You may not agree, but I think Green on 19 has a smart design that’s kind of similar to what we’re seeing with Lighthouse, UK’s zero-emissions, carbon neutral home.  Also, the LA Times featured Green on 19 recently, so check out their article.
