About The South 5th
The South 5th is a modern, highly green (in the eco-friendly sense) development. Units stand three stories tall and all have two-car garages and rooftop decks. Located in Bouldin at 2301 S. 5th, it’s in the heart of everything people like about 78704. An added bonus is the pool and outdoor area.
The South 5th HERS Rating
Green homes have many different qualifications. The South 5th has a national standard HERS index rating of 55, meaning it’s 45% more efficient than the HERS 2006 reference home. The 55 rating also means it’s 30% more efficient than Energy Star homes. For reference, net zero energy homes have a HERS index of 0. The South 5th is also qualified as a 5-Star Green building and classified as LEED Gold. Not so bad, eh?
The South on 5th – High on Style
Not only does the South 5th set a new bar for green standards in Austin real estate, it also achieves exemplary modern style. The front of the buildings are comprised of impressive floor-to-ceiling commercial grade windows. The finish out includes a 36” fisher & paykel gas stove with a matching vent hood. Kitchen cabinets are minimalist. The floating steal staircases with poplar wood treads also make quite a statement.
The South on 5th – Amenities
If the HERS rating and modern style have piqued your interest, we recommend you visit the pool. It’s a resort-style pool with a gazebo and gas grill for cooking. Even though Lady Bird Lake and Barton Springs are less than 2 1/2 miles away, you may never make it there. Additionally, there’s also an outdoor garden. The South on 5th sets a new standard for 78704 living!
