Climate Friendly Building Tour

Organized By: Sierra Club, Neighbors for More Neighbors, BikeMN

Location: Firefly Apartments, 2716 Grand Ave S, Minneapolis

Open house tour of Firefly Apartments: a new, all-electric, energy efficient building that promotes healthy air and sustainable transporation.

Join owner/developer Jay Rajaratnam and architect Adam Bradley Jonas to see how they replaced a poorly constructed single family home (SFH) with a 12-unit apartment showcasing green building techniques and sustainable-living. 

Features: bike amenties, walk/bike/transit/carshare-friendly location, low utility costs, rooftop solar, all-electric efficiency from Energy Star appliances, induction stoves that are safer, easier, and healthier than gas, efficient heat pump technology, and Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) that provides fresh air and recaptures up to 80% of energy.

Please walk/bike/bus/carshare/carpool if you can! There is no off-street parking available at this urban infill development (and that’s intentional!)

Light refreshments provided.  Please RSVP to help us plan for you.

This event is organized by Sierra Club, in partnership with Neighbors for More Neighbors and Bike MN.
