East Greenwich, RI – Dakota Partners has completed Phase 1 of its newest affordable housing community, Brookside Terrace in East Greenwich. This will be the first affordable housing community in the area.
Consisting of two phases, Phase 1 includes the construction of two 3-story residential buildings with 48 total units and a single story community building. Phase 2, currently under construction, will also include 48 affordable rental units in two additional three-story apartment buildings. All of the buildings are garden-style walk-up structures with a mix of one- and two-bedroom, open-concept style apartments.
Both phases of Brookside Terrace were designed and built to passive house standards, which utilizes super insulation, airtight building envelope and heat-recovery ventilation systems to reduce overall energy consumption. Dakota began implementing these principles into communities in 2017.
