Tanner Friedman Works w/Community 1st

May 15, 2009

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - Community 1st Development, a real estate company focused on urban residential development, neighborhood rehabilitation, "green built" homes and commercial redevelopment, chose Tanner Friedman to promote the company's construction of Detroit's first affordable, green home on May 13th.

The house marks the first dwelling for Community 1st's Alter Commons neighborhood, located in the Jefferson Chalmers area of Detroit's far Eastside. Discovery's Planet Green documented the monumental event for its "Renovation Nation" television series, scheduled to air the beginning of next year. The show features unique efforts in green home building renovation or construction projects and is hosted by Steve Thomas, formerly known for his work with "This Old House." 

Community 1st homes meet Michigan Green Built specifications and are Energy Star certified. Features within the home can help residents save as much as 30 percent in the cost of their utility bills and include a Complete Energy Star Whirlpool appliance package, a high efficiency furnace and central air conditioning unit, enhanced wall and ceiling insulation, Energy Star light fixtures and exhaust fans and Pella windows, among other features.

Based in Farmington Hills, Mich., Community 1st's mission is to rebuild and revitalize area neighborhoods and provide a foundation for re-engergized communities. In partnership with HUD, MSHDA, local municipalities and non-profit agencies, the organization provides a range of vital resources necessary to facilitate home ownership for low to moderate income individuals. This includes significant grant, tax abatement and educational components.
