Additional Notes Hook & Ladder creates 118 units of housing serving residents with incomes at or below 60% AMI, in a historically working class Minneapolis neighborhood with steadily increasing rents. The projects builds upon the area’s environmentally innovative elements propelled by an engaged community, including stormwater management, solar, and educational projects. The Hook & Ladder development is designed specifically to facilitate a long-term comparative study between PHIUS-certified construction and standard affordable housing construction. The project is comprised of two buildings; one will be built to comply with Green Communities requirements; the other to Passive House certification through PHIUS+ 2015. The two buildings, side by side and with nearly identical floorplans, unit mixes and tenant population, will provide a cost benefits analysis of Passive House, both in initial construction costs and long-term energy and maintenance costs, for replication in other markets. The development incorporates sustainable, energy efficient building techniques that are far beyond what is normally seen in affordable housing developments. The project developer is Newport Midwest with development consultation by Landon Group.
