Modern Eco-Chic Townhomes: Celadon Greenway
What is it?
A newly completed 24 town house development that is both green and nicely designed.
Celadon’s modern minimalist eco-friendly townhomes are meticulously designed. These spacious residences feature 10 to 20 foot ceilings with soaring open spaces, fully appointed gourmet European kitchens, luxury master suites and expansive windows--- and lots of eco-friendly features!
Why is it?
Origin Development, developer of Celadon, seeks to develop a new type of community that fosters the health of humanity and of the environment. The goal is to lessen our footprint on the Earth by promoting smarter development. Green building increases the chances for a higher resale value and provides a living environment that is healthier, more comfortable and more cost-effective.
All of the homes at Celadon are 30-40% more energy efficient than standard homes and are Energy Star qualified. Energy Star homes feature enhanced insulation, high-performance windows, tight construction and ducts, efficient heating and cooling, efficient appliances and third party verification. As a result, owners enjoy an automatic 5% savings year-round on their power bill.

where is it?
Celadon is set among the tree-lined streets and sidewalks of the Historic Wesley Heights neighborhood, less than a half mile from uptown Charlotte, North Carolina.
About 30% of the entire site is reserved for a dedicated tree-save area, reducing storm water runoff and ensuring pristine views remain while providing a buffer between the greenway and the private enclave of Celadon.
