Inside Marburg Square, Part II

On November 17, LEED AP and public relations committee chair of the Cincinnati chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council led a tour of Marburg Square in Oakley, which is building its new structures to LEED for Homes Silver standards.

Being built by the Ackermann Group at Marburg Avenue and Wasson Road, the $25 million development offers both urban flats, with more than 1,400 square feet, and townhomes, with more than 1,800 square feet.

Prices range from $264,900 for the urban flats to $389,900 for the townhomes.

The new builds earn most of their LEED points for optimal energy performance (66 HERS index) and sustainable sites, due to the project density, site permeability, and landscape design.

This slideshow, showing the two decorated urban flats models, contains 19 photos.

The link to part one, which features building exteriors and a few construction shots, is located below the slideshow.

Hover over the slideshow to bring up the controls. You may stop the slideshow by clicking on the square "stop" button, allowing you to scroll through the photos at your own leisure. To get a better view, click on each image to enlarge to 640 x 480. Photos will open in a new browser window.
