“The buildings’ design takes into consideration the noise, comfort and efficiency of the units, Pollin said. Fiberglas insulation along the corridors and between units keeps the noise level down. The building panels were made in Pennsylvania. Assembling the walls in advance with windows in place meant workers spend less time outside in the wind and elements. ‘It is totally different from the traditional stick-built buildings,’ Pollin said.” —East of Market to be City’s First LEED Apartment Complex, The Frederick News-Post
“The average gas and electric bill for a one-bedroom unit is about $53 per month. For a two-bedroom unit, that bill is about $67 per month. Electricity and water are each measured by unit, not for the entire building.” —East of Market Apartments Get Green Certifications, The Frederick News-Post
