March 2012 – Green Rehab in Botanical Grove
St. Louis-based Urban Improvement Construction (UIC) has embarked on the first holistic green neighborhood redevelopment in St. Louis. In the Botanical Grove neighborhood (just northeast of the Missouri Botanical Garden), UIC is building and renovating 30 homes to LEED for Homes standards.
UIC is also rehabbing an old warehouse to be the new home for the City Garden Montessori Charter School. When completed in Fall 2012, this new facility will meet LEED Gold standards.
StraightUp Solar is proud to be a part of this amazing neighborhood redevelopment project. Our first installation is a 2.16 kW system, featured above.
