December 21, 2007 – When you think of green this time of year it’s probably in the form of evergreen. But Emerald is offering up some green you can cash in on. If you visit their website, you’ll see a spiffy wrapped package with a big green bow. Click on the Holiday Offer and you’ll get a list of incentives available to buyers until December 31st.
There is one free eco-friendly electric scooter left worth about $2,000. New buyers also get $5,000 in upgrades they can use on flooring, cabinets, plumbing fixtures or a number of other finishes. Another $5,000 can be had if you refer another buyer to the project. Finally, if you use the development’s lender, Providence Funding Group, you can take $1,000 off closing costs on your condo. A low 5% down payment is required.
According to the construction update, the south tower is vertical and the north tower moving up. First occupancy of the 212 units is expected in spring of 2008. Some true green features of the development include recycled construction materials, low VOC paint and recycled interior fabrics. Even the sales brochures were made from recycled paper and printed with soy ink.
The 8,000 foot lobby will showcase a private resident bar dubbed Club Emerald. There will also be a common area off the bar called the Green Room which will feature a flat screen television with surround sound and be fully furnished.
If you don’t want to stuff your stocking with Emerald green and would rather have your own mantle and chimney for the holidays, check out the selection of Townhouses in Chicago with cozy living room fireplaces.
