We at Green Key often lament the shortage of green homes on the San Francisco market. For such an “eco-conscious” city, we really are lagging behind in the residential green building sector. But thankfully there are some developers out there like Lorax Development who are building green.
Official estimated completion date was July 10, rumor has it we’re looking at the first week of August. And the price, you ask? I’ll keep you posted.
