Clifton Pointe Project Boasts ‘Eco-Friendly’ Elements
The $10 million Clifton Pointe development on Sloane Avenue set to break ground this winter.
Make no mistake about it: The $10 million Clifton Pointe development on Sloane Avenue is new development. But the developers say that doesn’t mean the project won’t be friendly to the environment.
The project, set to begin construction this winter, boasts several “eco-friendly” aspects, starting with the demolition of the homes that stand in its way.
Developer Andrew Brickman, of Abode Living, said that the wood from the oak and hickory trees on the property will be used in the design of the 17 luxury townhomes.
“The townhomes at Clifton Pointe will literally be made from the earth they sit on,” he said. “Hopefully we’ll be able to save as much as possible.”
Some elements from the three homes — including the porches — will be taken down piece-by-piece and stored in a warehouse, where developers will try to find futures uses for them, Brickman said.
The townhomes themselves — with views of Lake Erie and Rocky River — will also be “eco-friendly.”
They will feature sustainable organic, low-maintenance gardens and Control 4 SmartHome technology. Construction will utilize an on-site comprehensive recycling program to collect materials than can be reused in order to reduce landfill waste.
Products used to build the homes — such as insulation, concrete and siding — will also be made from recycled materials.
“We think it’s worth doing,” Brickman said. “It’s the right thing to do.”
