It has been a good week for Pennrose Properties, LLC’s West Turner Residences in Allentown, PA.
West Turner is one of four Seniors finalists in the Affordable Housing Finance 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards. The projects were selected based on innovation, sustainability, and inventiveness. West Turner Residences was a partnership with Sacred Heart Hospital to create 61 new affordable apartments for seniors 62 years and older.
AHF subscribers can vote for their favorite in the ten categories in the July/August issue of AFH magazine. Online voting will take place from July 2nd to August 3rd. The winners will be announced in September.
Announced today, West Turner Residences is officially Passive House Certified by the Passive House Academy. Passive House design ensures energy efficiency in a building, which reduces its ecological footprint and results in buildings that require 80% less energy for heating and cooling.
