This Pro Tour featured an ambitious new development: a first-of-its-kind affordable housing project funded through the New York Homes and Community Renewal (HCR) Unified Funding Round in Upstate New York to utilize the Passive House (PHIUS) program. Hosting company Sustainable Comfort, Inc. discussed the design and construction process and the unique features implemented to balance efficiency and affordability. This development was incentivized through the NYSERDA Low Rise New Construction program.

The project consists of 12 buildings with 8 units per building for a total of 96 units in the project. It is Phase I of a 4 phase project with mostly affordable and some market rate apartments. The project will serve as a model for other developers who need to meet the strict requirements of affordable housing including accessibility, affordability, and the additional requirements of the most stringent energy efficiency program available.
