Eko Park is a five building, 114-unit housing complex located near both Drury University and Missouri State campuses. It caters to college students, and initiates and image change for multifamily developments.
With its easy accessibility to downtown, the location of the complex encourages residents to use alternative means of transportation to reduce the harmful effects of automobiles. The use of environmentally friendly materials were also highly utilized: low VOC materials, low flow fixtures, high efficiency appliances and mechanical systems accompanied with spray-in insulation reduce overall energy cost/use of each building, creating a healthier place of living and reducing the carbon footprint. Using LEED guidelines in both construction and implementation, the goal was to set the standard in “green” living.
