Big Hempcrete News from MA – Boston-area Development to Feature 12 Hemp-Lime Eco-Units

By Jean Lotus

A 12-unit residential project in Massachusetts created from hemp-lime tip-up panels will be the largest hempcrete dwelling in the United States when it begins construction this fall. 

The Hillside Center for Sustainable Living in Newburyport will be adding six solar-paneled 2-unit hempcrete “Tea Houses” to the 4.5 complex’s South Rise.

Developers David Hall and architect Keith Moskow are the second generation of a longtime construction family in Newburyport, founded by their late fathers.

The Newburyport project is an entire sustainable living community built on a remediated brownfield industrial site that formerly contained 3,000 tons of toxic ash, which was all removed.
