Known as one of the country’s leading developers of Net Zero communities, MODUS Companies, has completed its latest project in the highly sought after Arcadia community of Phoenix, called Arcadia Views Lofts (located at 2640 N 52nd Street, Phoenix, AZ 85008). Built in partnership with Kinella Construction and HercuTech, the manufacturer of HercuWall® (a patented “green” wall building system that is not only mold, insect and fire resistant but also hurricane rated), this will be the first-ever Net Zero Energy multifamily project in Phoenix.
“By partnering with Kinella and HercuWall for this development, we have been able to provide not only a structure that’s safer than using traditional lumber, but it also cuts down on the utilization of natural resources, lowers our carbon footprint and offers cost-savings in the form of utility bills being a third of the normal price,” said Founder of MODUS Companies Ed Gorman.
After partnering with Kinella Construction and HercuTech on this project, MODUS’ Gorman coined their partnership as “The Tesla of Built-to-Rent.” The HercuWall® building system alone (which is made from EPS foam, reinforced with a patented steel ShearStrip, laminated with a weather-resistant barrier, and followed by site integrated concrete) provides superior strength, durability and safety for homeowners compared to traditional wood build outs. HercuWall also results in a more sustainable, highly energy efficient home. Because of this, Arcadia Views will save over 8,000kg of carbon emissions annually and will save its residents over $3,500 in energy bills year after year.
“We are extremely proud of this project and honored to partner with MODUS and Kinella. This team has the vision, commitment, and passion for offering sustainable, eco-conscious housing in the multifamily space,” said HercuTech CEO Jason Rhees. “To be among the first in the area to offer this is not only a major win for us but also for the residents, who will recognize measurable cost-savings, healthier air quality, and a quieter living experience, all in a stronger and more environmentally efficient community. As energy costs increase every year – especially for those of us living in America’s hottest big city – we believe everyone should expect this quality of residential construction that the HercuWall system maintains.”
Designed with a single-family feel and multifamily amenities, the two floor plan options offered at Arcadia View Lofts are a two-bedroom loft in a two-story building and a one-bedroom in a one-story building. Conveniently located just south of the Biltmore and Arcadia neighborhoods, and blocks from Scottsdale, Arcadia Views Lofts is in an ideal, centrally located area within greater Phoenix. In addition to being Net Zero Energy and using HercuWall® technology, the property will also feature solar panels, Energy Star appliances, Nest thermostats, advanced home automation, a community pool/spa and ramada, and each unit has its own back yard with pet door.
