Attractive, environmentally friendly living and commercial space at East Avenue will feature green planning and architectural concepts that minimize land consumption, energy and water usage, and traffic generation. Innovative green building concepts designed and built into the community will be exhibited in an appealing nature education center that will be LEED-certified.
Residential structures will be built within a few walking minutes of retail stores and public transportation––to prevent sprawl and minimize vehicular traffic in the mixed-use, planned community.
Public spaces, including a sun calendar plaza, and walkways are being designed to create a pleasurable, interconnected community environment. High-tech down-faced lighting will keep the skies above East Avenue dark at night.
Signage along walkways throughout the community will explain important features that make East Avenue a ‘green’ community.
“Great land planning and open space preservation can substantially enhance the ‘green’ performance of a community versus just a group of traditionally placed buildings that use the latest celebrated ‘green’ technologies,” said Andy Sarwal, the developer of East Avenue. “East Avenue will feature many forward-thinking land planning concepts in addition to many of the latest ‘green’ technologies.”
East Avenue’s sustainability benefits, in conjunction with its beautiful architectural design, and close proximity to downtown, the University of Texas, and the Mueller Redevelopment, is attracting a lot of interest among businesses and recreation enthusiasts.
