- LEED-Homes Certified Gold
The goal of Kingstown Crossings is to provide safe, affordable housing for families with children who have been facing homelessness. As developer, Crossroads Rhode Island’s values of safety, respect, and effectiveness have guided every decision in the planning, design, and construction of the project.
Green construction is critically important here because the residents are responsible for their utility costs as they work toward financial stability. Residents already report saving hundred of dollars on their gas and electric bills. The high performance is unusual because it uses conventional construction materials and systems. The success is the result of thoughtful planning and careful execution by TRAC Builders. This project is LEED-Homes Certified at the Gold level.
The complex will ultimately include 104 apartments, a childcare center, and a management building. The first families moved into their new homes in the first four buildings in the spring of 2011, with another 13 buildings planned for the 14 acre site.
