GFC Completes Construction on the First Eco-Friendly, Luxury Condominium in Somerville

Units Now Available for Sale

WESTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 18, 2009) - GFC Development Corp., a leading 'green' real estate development and construction firm serving the Greater Boston area, is pleased to announce that it has completed construction on "Endicott Green Residences," a luxury, eco-friendly condominium located at 57 Endicott Ave, Somerville, MA. Less than a mile to Davis Square and easily accessible to public transportation, Endicott Green Residences represents a landmark building, providing the City's first 'green' luxury condominium.

Recipient of the 2009 Green Building of America Award, Endicott Green Residences is currently under review by the U.S. Green Council to receive Silver LEED certification. Upon approval, Endicott Green Residences will become one of only 30 homes in the City of Boston with this distinction.

"With a lack of eco-friendly housing available in Somerville, we set out to create a cutting-edge, green design that was far from the boring 'box' structures associated with efficiency homes," said Charles Aggouras, president of GFC Development Corp. "We partnered with architectural firm MZO Group, who did an outstanding job of bringing innovative ideas to life. From the roofing to the walls, flooring and appliances, we have seamlessly integrated top-of-the-line brands, custom lighting, and all the fine touches to merge luxury living with sustainability. People will be amazed at how easy and low-maintenance 'green living' can be."

Endicott Green Residences was built with a total of three (3) units; currently two are for sale and one is under agreement. All units are approximately 1,500sq. ft., have 2 to 3 bedrooms with 2 baths, 2 dedicated parking spaces, and a roof deck or patio. Each unit is equipped with ENERGY STAR-rated, leading brand name appliances, 96% AFUE-sealed (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) combustion boilers; professionally designed tiled baths by Geologica of Boston's acclaimed Design Center and lighting by the "Best of Boston" award-winner Lucia Lighting & Design.
