Wind-powered residential complex will seek LEED Silver certification.

EcoLogic Lofts, a new seven-story condominium residence will be built in Bucktown, which will make sure that residents get green electricity and end up paying about 10% less in their utility bills. The project includes the construction of 94 one- and two-bedroom apartments ranging from 690 to 1,335 square feet. The apartment complex will use wind turbines to generate about 2% of the building’s energy requirements.

The apartments will be available for a starting price of about $200,000 with more luxurious dwelling being priced close to $499,000. A dedicated indoor parking will also be made available at an additional charge of $30,000 and the buyers who already follow the green path by driving a hybrid will get parking in a reserved area.

The building will also include a rooftop garden, energy-efficient lighting systems, indoor air purifiers and a dedicated recycling center. With those many green features, Senco Properties, developer of the project, is looking forward to seek LEED Silver certification.
