“Wellory Living captures Huntsville’s innovative, forward-thinking nature. RCP has done a great job at bringing housing options to the city that are as bold as the people of Huntsville. MidCity District continues to showcase our city as a true destination for top talent to live, work and play.”Mayor Tommy Battle
Construction is set to begin winter 2023 with full project completion expected by summer 2025. RCP plans to release more project details and renderings throughout project construction.
The Net Zero Energy Concept
So what exactly is a “net zero energy” multifamily development? Net zero energy buildings generate as much renewable power as they use, using a mix of onsite renewable energy, electrification and deep efficiency measures to reduce its carbon footprint.
More than 40,000 square-feet of the Wellory Living roof is PV panels, generating power every day. Wellory Living’s design takes a dynamic approach to sustainability prioritizing continued reduction in impacts during construction, and operations moving forward. It is projected to be an all-electric building.
Essentially, the $108 million Wellory Living development aims to have a net zero impact through:
- Solar cell photo-voltaic panels
- Reflective roofing
- Greatly reduced leakage and waste
- Smart thermostats
“Wellory Living will showcase how sustainable living is achievable for all looking to decrease their carbon footprint.”Parren James, Principal at Grounded Capital Partners
