Green housing opening today in Bayside

More Avesta Housing news, strangely. They cut the ribbon today on the Pearl Place Apartments, "Maine’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified affordable housing development," according to a press release sent out today. The 60 (cat-friendly) units, located at Oxford and Pearl streets, are also endorsed by the U.S. Green Building Council. They're listed for rent at between $639-1064/month, with income limits. 

If future tenants are properly educated about the green aspects of their digs, sustainable and affordable housing developements are the next step toward ensuring that "eco-friendly" doesn't mean "elitist."
