LUCHA’s Tierra Linda project reached several key milestones this month. 75% of the project is now complete and 8 of the the 12 buildings – 27 of 36 units – have certificates of occupancy. In fact, 16 units are already occupied by tenants and their families! The the triple-paned windows recently arrived for our 6-unit Casa Pasiva, the first of its kind in Illinois, and construction crews are currently installing the liquid-applied air barrier.
On June 20th, LUCHA, along with with EcoAchievers and Passive House Institute US, hosted a tour of the Passive House for nearly 100 industry partners. The 6-flat is a model of both sustainability and affordability, and will be habitable by this fall. Check out some photos from the tour and the project!
