The 2013 groundbreaking of its first phase long behind us, Phase II is now set in motion at reNewbold, the first LEED Platinum-certified sustainable housing development in South Philadelphia: homes are available. (Hm, maybe be quick lest they go like hotcakes!)

Unfolding over at 16th and Moore, the latest stage of the project developed by John Longacre’s LPMG Companies involves the construction of energy efficient homes in Philly’s Newbold neighborhood, seven of which are rowhomes and two of which are condos with retail space. Groundbreaking for this second phase took place last September, right after Phase I was completed and homes sold out. Construction of the Phase II homes is expected to finish this summer. (Again, quick!)

Housing features will include on-site parking, green roof decks, a rainwater harvesting system, and private terraces just off the master bedrooms. Each home will also have triple pane insulated windows, which is expected to help reduce utility costs by up to 60 percent.

Below, a look at some of the Phase II homes.
