One of the ten biggest developments of its kind in the US, this sustainable, master-planned community features 7,500 Net-Zero ready homes.
The community will help the city of Austin meet its target to reduce CO2 emissions to zero. Whisper Valley will eventually include 7,500 net-zero ready single and multi-family homes and apartments, plus 2+ million square feet of retail and office space across 2,062 acres (900 hectares). All structures will be geoexchange and solar equipped, capable of achieving the Net-Zero energy (or carbon neutral) standard adopted by the City of Austin’s Municipal Building Code for all new construction homes. Austin has established a 2050 target to reduce carbon emissions to zero.
Whisper Valley homeowners incur no upfront costs for the geothermal system, as the ground loop infrastructure is pre-installed throughout the community.
Phase 1 of the community includes 237 homes (200 single family homes on 50-60 ft lots; 39 town homes).
