With the Sol Lux Alpha, the future of home construction has arrived in the Bay Area. The Mission District property from Club Real Estate is the only luxury residence in the country that runs entirely off the grid. This style of building is known as a passive house, and it produces renewable energy that powers the entire structure. “Climb Real Estate is excited to represent these [units at] Sol Lux Alpha, the future of construction in the country,” Chris Lim, Climb’s founder told Haute Living via email. “We have been awarded the 2018 US Department of Energy ‘Housing Innovation Award,’ and the Passive House Institute US ‘Best Overall Project in North America’ for 2018 which recognizes the brave carbon neutral efforts of this local San Francisco developer.”

Two Sol Lux Alpha units are currently for sale: the penthouse and third floor going for $2,750,000 and $2,495,000 respectively.

What’s the benefit of living in this type of green residence? “The residents of Sol Lux Alpha can live in a sublime luxury and comfort, with the peace of mind that their lifestyles are part of the solution to climate change,” John Sarter, the developer of Sol Lux Alpha told Haute Living.  “The energy system ‘brain’ of the building generates approximately twice the energy required for all living systems, enabling up to 30 thousand miles of emission-free EV driving per year for each home. The indoor air quality afforded by Passive House certification and the energy recovery ventilation—the lungs of the home—adds to the owner’s quality of life potentially even extending their life by this superior air quality. Practically airtight construction, excellent insulation, and thermal modeling create an ultra-quiet interior contributing to an exceptionally relaxing living experience in the urban context.”
