The Seventy-Six Excellence
The Seventy-Six will be the first triple Net Zero (Energy, Water, and Waste) multifamily/mixed-use project in the United States. The project seeks to create a complete transformation of the area, including the creation of economic and environmental equity by integrating scalable ownership models into businesses and homes. A radically sustainable infrastructure with high- quality, affordable, and flexible housing that meets universal design and accessibility requirements that can accommodate aging, changes in family size, and alternative living arrangements.
“Incredibly thorough in terms of the number of design decisions they’re trying to adequately address from energy to water to food to mixed use to housing access”
This Zero Impact Development will generate 100% of its energy demand from renewable sources, conserve 100% of its water consumption, and recycle and compost 100% of its waste. It will utilize interdependent biological cycles, including constructed wetlands, organics composting, and water reuse to achieve environmental justice. Regional food production and urban farming infrastructure are integrated through the use of vertical gardens and marine organism/terrestrial aquaculture, to create stable food markets, affordable, high-quality foods, and job opportunities.
Living Machine principles will be implemented and demonstrate interdependent biological cycles to grow, clean, and maintain the environment including constructed wetlands, organics composting, and water reuse; that will help to achieve environmental balance by providing clean air, water, and nutritious foods in a non-toxic material environment.
