Downtown tree canopy a sustainability feature of infill development; Sacramento, CA

Urban infill on a micro scale : Honest Local Real Estate:
Made up of nine urban dwellings, 9 on F features two traditionally styled tri-level homes facing the street, four courtyard “soft loft” rowhouses, and three decidedly urban alley units tucked neatly in the rear (definitely a happier backyard discovery than the home across the street—occupied at one point by the infamous Dorothea Puente—is known for). All nine homes were crafted with sustainability in mind and several of the units include solar (the street-facing homes don’t include solar, largely because they’re directly under Downtown’s famous tree canopy—itself an energy-saving feature because of the reduced cooling costs in the summer).
