This 20-unit development in the heart of Ballard is a striking example of the trend to increase housing density in Seattle. Replacing an aging duplex, the new building provides 20 one- and two-bedroom dwellings with top floor double height lofts. Parking spaces are provided for half the units on the ground floor while a large bike storage area accommodates the other typical means of transportation for the residents. And since parking and transportation are such important issues in the neighborhood, InHaus made a successful bid to have two new Zipcars parked across the street from the development.

Last night we were proud to be recognized on field at the Seattle Mariners game by Seattle City Light as they presented InHaus with their Energy Efficiency Superstar Award. The award recognizes the work that has gone into the design of our Solo Lofts project in Ballard, which is currently under construction and targeting BuiltGreen 4 star certification.
Thanks to Seattle City Light and to the Mariners for a great evening, and amazing game!
We were very honored to be included as one of the nominees for the 2013 Fraser Valley Commercial building awards. Over 44 amazing projects were nominated this year, from Surrey, Langley, White Rock Abbotsford & Mission. The award criteria required a building or renovation to compliment the surrounding properties and area, be aesthetically pleasing, include unique architectural features, and answer a specific development need within the community.
Our LEED Platinum Beachaus 1 & 2 project in White Rock BC received the Award of Excellence in the Multi-Family category. The project involved rezoning & reorienting two small lots, allowing us to construct two fully “daylit”, ultra-efficient smart homes. The homes were very unique and the project serves as a great example for sustainable infill development in the White Rock area. The project will also be featured in an upcoming issue of the Fraser Valley Business Examiner.
As a total surprise, InHaus Development was also awarded the 2013 Fortis BC Green Building Award for excellence in sustainable development & construction. We are proud to be recognized for the extra work which we put into each sustainable project that we work on, and very happy that awareness of green building practices is rapidly improving year after year throughout the Fraser Valley, and the Pacific Northwest.
We are excited to announce that our innovative single family LEED Platinum homes, Beachaus I & II, have been named as finalists in the 2013 Fraser Valley Commercial Building Awards. The Fraser Valley Building Awards honor & recognize the best developers, builders and contractors in the area for excellence and innovation in building in the South Surrey, White Rock & Langley areas.
Our project has been nominated for excellence in the Energy Efficiency / Green building category. We look forward to the November 28th award ceremony & hope we can take home another win for the InHaus Development team!
