Columbia City Lights the Way to Green Living

With residents just a short walk to high-speed transportation, farmer’s markets, parks and Columbia City’s rich diversity of restaurants and shops, Columbia City promises to be a mecca for Seattle urbanites living green.

In anticipation of the Light Rail opening in July, the area around the new Edmunds Street Light Rail station (located at Alaska St. and MLK Blvd) has transformed into an urban infill neighborhood of modern green homes, offering a low-impact lifestyle including car optional living.

Modern. Green. Artful

Modern. Green. Artful

There are several green builders leading in this renaissance including local architect Tony Case and his company Case Design and Project Management. Case’s new construction projects in the Columbia City area are exclusively urban infill, Built-Green certified, and modern design.
Case adds to the community he works in by emphasizing stewardship towards the land which includes reducing the carbon footprint of his new homes and selecting materials that have a low impact on the environment. Case’s latest home project complete this June, Columbia City Green, combines contemporary craftsmanship with artful living, in both form and function.

Case says, “To complement our new homes and enhance the neighborhood, we are working with a group that will provide and maintain a small garden plot at each new home, as part of a Community Supported Agriculture program. So if you buy one of the homes, you get free veggies!”

As easy, fast transportation comes this summer to Seattle, commuters from all over the city can now connect with Columbia City to catch a movie, bike through Genesee Park, tour a green home, or dine out with the Beatwalk crowds for soulful music and art every first Friday of the month.

For more information on green homes contact Tony Case at 206.760.2961 or visit his open houses June 13th&14 at 4114 34th Ave S, 98118.
