Located just off Beverly’s newly updated
Rantoul Street, Hardy Street is simple in nature but big on energy efficiency.
This affordable family housing project by Harborlight Community Partners offers
six two-bedroom units, each with front-to-back layouts across the building and
spacious floor plans. What happens behind the walls and ceilings is where the
efficiency comes to play, exceeding building insulation code requirements and
utilizing high-efficiency mechanical systems with fresh air intakes. The triple-glazed
windows are a perfect choice.
A close walk to the train station, restaurants, and the post office, the residents have virtually everything they need within walking distance. Keeping with the aesthetic of the adjacent residential community, the building exterior includes clapboard siding with shingle accents and a flat roof to accommodate solar panels. It is as though it has been there all along.
