The Greenspire Apartments, Longmont, Colorado | Greenspire is Colorado’s first Passive House inspired apartment building, providing 44 healthy, affordable studio apartments built with the heart-centered “why” of leaving the world a better place for future generations. Developer/Builder Gary Kinzie worked with Cody and Lisa Farmer of Mainstream Corporation to design a building that uses features like airtight construction and 30% more insulation than Code requires to optimize both regenerative performance and affordability.
Cody and Lisa Farmer did the energy-efficiency analysis and Passive House energy modeling to put the project on the path toward achieving Passive House Certification. Greenspire benefits the health of its occupants and the environment at the same time. Renters moved in early 2021 and there is still a waitlist!
