Bozzuto Homes Building Neighborhood that Offers Eco-friendly Design, Construction, Living
Bozzuto Homes has commenced construction on Towson Green, a new traditional neighborhood development consisting of 121 for-sale townhomes on nine acres in the heart of Towson, Md.
Located between Towsontown Boulevard and East Burke Avenue just east of York Road, Towson Green is within easy walking distance to Towson Town Center's numerous stores and restaurants, and minutes from downtown Baltimore and the Inner Harbor.
Townhomes will be offered in four different floor plans, all with garages and some with up to four bedrooms, and will start in the low to mid $300's. A community sales center will open to the public in early March.
"We are thrilled to begin work on what will be a remarkable community," said Tom Baum, president, Bozzuto Homes, Inc. "Not only will Towson Green offer the comforts of suburban living combined with the conveniences of an urban location, but homeowners will have the opportunity to live in a community that respects, and enhances, the environment in which it was built."
Towson Green is being built to achieve the NAHB National Green Building Standard™ Silver Level and will be one of the most environmentally conscious communities in Maryland, offering sustainable design, construction, and finishes, as well as ENERGY STAR appliances. All of the homes will be ENERGY STAR certified.
The community will include pocket parks and a tot lot, but the central amenity will be a rain garden – a bio-retention area consisting of aquatic plantings that will treat stormwater runoff – complete with walkways and benches.
In addition, Bozzuto is working with the Chesapeake Fund, a non-profit organization that works to reduce the amount of the Chesapeake Bay's two biggest pollutants – nitrogen and phosphorous – flowing into local streams and waterways by evaluating the development's output and mitigation efforts; providing recommendations on project designs; and offering eco-friendly landscape maintenance advice for homeowners.
