HOME DESCRIPTION:
907 W Cullerton is the 8th home in +Plus House’s line of LEED Silver & Gold homes built to spec. The +Plus House’s mission is to make green housing affordable and to provide a model for green residential development. The original +Plus House, which started construction in 2015, was Pilsen’s first LEED home. Now with 7 homes built with LEED Silver or Gold certification, +Plus House homes have made Pilsen the greenest residential neighborhood in Chicago.

The tour of +Plus House #8 will aim to educate participants about achieving LEED Silver certification while building affordably, and on
marketing green homes. Our homes are unique in Chicago in that they offer a high standard of green living close to downtown, for
competitive prices. On the tour we will discuss specific green features in our home such as a foam insulated foundation, drywall with formaldehyde-absorbing technology that actively removes formaldehyde from the air producing clean, healthy air, concrete that uses recycled CO2, and their many health benefits.

Developers and trades in the industry can come and see how we do green simply and profitably. LEED homes are proven to sell for more, faster. We help demonstrate that and will have data on site of our market times and sales in comparison to the market.
