Cost: $6.3 million
Status: Completed 2011.


The first new construction of multi-family residential housing in the Mississippi River town of Fort Madison, Iowa in more than fifteen years, Bluff Apartments offers residents eco-friendly, spacious, affordable housing. Set in a wooded landscape crisscrossed by nature trails, Bluff Apartments includes 40 energy-efficient units in five buildings surrounding a private community clubhouse with a fitness center, a party room with an adjoining kitchen, and a fully equipped computer center. This well-built, environmentally sustainable development is grounded in thoughtful site selection, architectural design, construction techniques, and energy efficient heating and cooling designed to maintain a HERS rating of below 80, supporting long-term energy affordability for residents. This eco-friendly development provides much-needed housing in a region increasingly known for green industry, including the recently expended Siemens Corporation wind turbine manufacturing plant.
