As a LEED for Homes development, Dutch Valley View is beautifully designed for energy efficiency and accessibility. Each of these six units are two-story with three bedrooms and two baths; two of these six are universal-design units built to accommodate those individuals with audio, visual and mobility requirements. Among these features are a bath with custom accessibility features, custom kitchen appliances for easy access, and special security features with horns and lights. "LEED for Homes" designates "Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design"
and certifies efficiency and sustainability of design, including reduced energy usage, water, construction materials selected to restrict maintenance costs, and greatly reduced utility bills. As with KHP's highly successful LEED for Homes - Gold certified on Chestnut, Dutch Valley View Duplexes were designed by Elizabeth Eason Architects.
KHP board and staff are beaming with pride at the transformation of this property from a foreclosed, badly blighted apartment building into this new and beautifully built 6-unit property that is not only sustainable and energy efficient but also affordable, demonstrating that the latest environmentally expedient design trends may also be affordable to low income families and individuals.
Funding for Dutch Valley View was made possible through City of Knoxville Community Development Department HUD Neighborhood Stabilizaton Program (NSP) and HOME funds. Mayor Rogero emphasized that this project is another example of the City of Knoxville's ongoing pledge to support access to affordable housing.
