ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes in New Johns Creek Neighborhood

ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes in New Johns Creek Neighborhood

December 21st, 2023

One of Atlanta’s premier homebuilders, The Providence Group, commits to build ENERGY STAR® certified homes in new Johns Creek neighborhood.

The Providence Group, the premier developer and homebuilder of award-winning neighborhoods throughout Atlanta, announces their new Johns Creek neighborhood Ward’s Crossing will provide ENERGY STAR certified homes. The gated, master-planned community will include 128 new construction homes upon completion. 

The Environmental Protection Agency - EPA’s ENERGY STAR Residential New Construction program has made a significant positive impact in energy-efficient construction and environmental protection. An energy-efficient home helps lower the total cost of homeownership and is designed to be healthier, more comfortable and better for the environment. 

The Providence Group understands the appeal of today’s energy-conscious homebuyers who are concerned about the high cost of powering their home. The ENERGY STAR certification at the Ward’s Crossing neighborhood will provide homes and townhomes with foam insulation in attic and over garage areas of the homes, tankless water heaters, smart thermostats, lower tonnage HVAC systems, low flow commodes and faucets and ENERGY STAR rated appliances.   All of these energy-efficient features can reduce the cost of homeownership and provide a shield against rising energy bills.

According to the EPA, heating and cooling can cost the average homeowner nearly $1,000 a year—almost half of the total energy bill. To help reduce these costs, ENERGY STAR certified homes come equipped with heating, ventilating, and cooling (HVAC) systems that are designed and installed to optimize performance, lower utility bills, keep the homeowner more comfortable, and provide better moisture control, better indoor air quality and quieter operation.

“The Providence Group has been building premier homes throughout Atlanta for the past 20+ years, and we are proud to now offer ENERGY STAR certified packages at no additional cost to our homeowners at Ward’s Crossing,” said Troy Caldwell, COO The Providence Group. “These energy-efficient homes will result in significant energy savings for our homebuyers over the long term.”

Ward’s Crossing features The Providence Group’s signature quality, style and curb appeal, with a variety of townhome and single-family floor plans. The townhomes feature both two and three-story layouts, and single family homes provide the buyer with several floorplans from the widely popular Carriage collection. Amenities include a gated entrance, swim club with cabana pavilion, and the neighborhood features pocket parks throughout. Homeowners in Ward’s Crossing’s enjoy lawn maintenance provided by the Home Owners Association. The neighborhood is also in one of the top rated school districts in Georgia, with State Bridge Crossing Elementary, Autry Mill Middle School and John’s Creek High School, which is immediately adjacent to the community. 

Just last month, John’s Creek was named one of the best places to live in the US, because of its big city perks with a tight-knit community lifestyle a smaller city affords. Not only does the area have great shopping, restaurants and schools, but John’s Creek is one of the largest concentrations of tech and health care companies in the region which provide top-notch medical care and good paying jobs. More than 450 health care and social services companies are established in John’s Creek.  Boston Scientific picked the city for its new state-of-the art research facility featuring an 8,000 SF pathology lab.
