Green in the City

The modern homebuyer can often be conflicted when buying a new home about increasing their "carbon footprint." But, there are many solutions to investing in your personal future, as well as the future of the planet. One solution is to invest in newer buildings built to advanced green standards. Gate 48, a new condo development in Oakland's Temescal district, is one of the best green buildings in the East Bay--and one of the best deals around, period!

Gate 48 is a new 12-unit building developed by Ron Kriss and Lawton Associates...and it is among the first multi-family residential buildings to be certified at the highest level of Green construction by the statewide non-profit organization Build It Green. The building's energy efficiency exceeds California's stringent code requirements, which are by far the most demanding in the nation.

Even better...Gate 48 has incredible buyer incentives to spread the new urban green lifestyle. Buyers can receive up to $25,000 in credits...or a brand new Toyota Prius. And, with already affordable prices ranging from $399,000 to $549,000, this green deal is also one of the best deals in the East Bay.
