NET ZERO ENERGY LOW EMBODIED CARBON
A long term focus is the key characteristic that unites all of the RDC projects, in this vein an understanding that the CO2 emission related to the built environment must be reduced for ecological and thus economic sustainability has become a key point in the companies decision. Furthermore, RDC views total cost of ownership, and a design and material selection matrix created with waste reduction and the total lifecycle in mind as requisite considerations for future developments across the residential, commercial and industrial real estate market. Rather than waiting for the inevitable, RDC has decided to take considered steps towards the creation of an innovative, economically sustainable and environmentally friendly development model. The Palm Street townhomes will be the inaugural demonstration of this development model, which has been crafted in line with the standards promulgated by the Passive House Institute, and localized best practices outlined by organizations such as the U.S. Green Building Council Texas and Houston Green Building Resource Center.
NECESSITY MEETS LUXURY
RDC is executing the Palm Street Townhomes in large part to perfect its sustainable development practices, which it views as a necessity for all future developments. Simultaneously the project will be a demonstration of the ability to achieve these goals while also satisfying the traditional standards of design, fit and finish demanded by the luxury home buyer. By crafting a product that will appeal to the ne plus ultra strata of the market, while still achieving its core principle of value via quality RDC will hone its sustainable development modalities under the most demanding conditions, and gain valuable insights as to how to economically promulgate these modalities across the various market sectors and geographies in which it operates.
A COMMUNITY OFFERING THE BEST OF THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT
The Palm Street townhomes are located along a rapidly developing corridor equidistant from Downtown Houston and The Texas Medical Center both of which can be easily accessed via the Houston Metro Red Line. Residents will be able to easily walk on well landscaped and beautified sidewalks to either the Museum District or Wheeler Transit Center Stop, both of which will provide easy access to the shopping, dining and employment opportunities all along the line, which also stops at the world class Rice University. Additionally, the line will also offer easy, safe and hassle free access to the NRG Stadium Complex home to a diverse range of events including: The Houston Rodeo, the NCAA Final Four, World Class Concerts, and NFL Football.
Further, residents can walk across the street to one of the premier museums in the U.S., or venture down the street from the community's front gate to take in the environs, exhibitions and events at the Yoshio Taniguchi designed Asia Society Texas.
The desire for more natural environs can be easily satisfied by a stroll at the neighboring 445 acre Hermann Park, which hosts a range of running trails, a golf course, multiple gardens, dinning, The Miller Outdoor Theater, and contiguous access to both the Houston Zoo and Houston Museum and Natural Science.
All of this while being located in an established walkable community, with wide boulevards, great neighborhood dining options, easy access to a range of services, and direct access to some of the best medical facilities in the world. RDC is confident that the strength of this location will appeal to the discerning clientele that will drive the demand for the sustainable luxury lifestyle offered by this development.
