Net-zero Ankeny Apartments reviewed by Design Commission (images)

An initial Design Review hearing has been held for the Ankeny Apartments, a new development in the Central Eastside with a mix of 17 one and two bedroom apartment units, and designed by YGH Architecture. The 6 story building is intended to achieve net zero energy use, and incorporates sustainable features such as photovoltaic panels at the roof and walls, triple pane passive house rated windows, and highly insulated walls and roofs. Three parking spaces for plug-in vehicles would be provided at the ground floor, which would also include long term bike parking for fifteen bicycles. The remaining required long-term bike spaces will be located within the units.
