WALTERS GROUP PLANS CONSTRUCTION OF WHISPERING HILLS APARTMENTS IN BARNEGAT

52 Affordable Residences Will Offer Green Amenities

BARNEGAT, N.J., March. 13, 2012 – The Walters Group, a local residential and commercial real estate developer, expects to begin construction this month on the affordable rental apartment component of Whispering Hills. Totaling 52 units, the affordable housing community will be located off Rose Hill Road, between Barnegat Boulevard and Route 9. The first phase is slated to open in late fall of 2012.

The new LEED-certified residences will consist of six two-story and one one-story buildings, featuring 52 spacious one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. Each apartment will be equipped with Energy Star-rated appliances, designed to help residents save minimally 15 percent and upwards to 35 percent on energy usage.

Residents will also have access to a tot-lot playground, recreational field, and walking trails. The community is ideally positioned near abundant recreational amenities including swimming, fishing, and boating.

The entire Whispering Hills development is being built to LEED standards, a green rating system started by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED-certified homes are more energy efficient than conventional non-green homes, translating into savings for homeowners. In addition, Walters’ residential developments are Energy Star-certified, saving residents as much as 35 percent on gas, electric and water costs.

Barnegat is a coastal community, bordered on the east by Barnegat Bay and separated from the Atlantic Ocean by the barrier island of Long Beach. The historic community offers residents proximity to two major cities, Philadelphia and New York City, while enjoying the charm and ambiance of coastal living. The town has been recognized for its outstanding quality-of-life, including exceptional recreational amenities and a respected educational school system.
