The Roberts Tower, will be the first certified-green high-rise building in the Midwest. It has been designed to achieve a Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy Efficient Design) Certification by the US Green Building Council. The condos will have bamboo floors, high-efficiency insulated windows and efficient appliances. They will also use geothermal energy for heating and cooling, and a wind turbine could be built on the roof. Overall, the energy consumption will be reduced by 75% and the utility bills for residents will be as low as $30 to $40 a month. The tower’s expected completion date is late 2008 or early 2009.
