Stellar Apartments is a newly constructed 54 unit multi-family housing development in Eugene built for the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County. Stellar consists of 11 resident buildings (1, 2 & 3 bedrooms), a community building with manager’s unit, bike shelter, playground, and a community garden area.
Stellar Apartments was designed with energy efficiency in mind. All of the resident apartment units meet Earth Advantage standards, with one of the resident apartment buildings constructed to be the first multi-family “Passive House” building in the country. The EWEB monitored “Passive House” was constructed with a continuous layer of rigid insulation on the exterior sub-sheathing, bulked up R-Value batt insulation in the walls, upgraded triple pane windows, and dramatically increased joint sealant. This resulted in a blower door test of .04!
