FISHERS, Ind., September 8, 2020 /3BL Media/ - Land Betterment Corporation (“Land Betterment” or the “Company”), an environmental solutions company fostering positive impact through upcycling former coal mining sites to create sustainable community development and job creation, is proud to announce its recognition by Think Realty Magazine.  In its article, Think Realty Magazine discusses how container-based modular homes, which are upcycled from used shipping containers, offers an economic solution to the housing problems facing the Appalachian region and to the environment. 

Central Appalachia and rural Midwest communities are quietly facing a crisis when it comes to quality, cost-effective living. Currently, their choice is to either live in substandard housing, or leave. There is a lack of investment in the region, builders are not entering the market, and there is low supply of rental units which is stressing renters.   Additionally, with the poor quality of the current housing stock, homeowners are getting squeezed from repair costs and high utility bills. 

To address this problem, Land Betterment’s sustainable housing division, ekō, is bringing an affordable and sustainable solution to the region in the form of housing developments comprised of upcycled, container-based, modular homes.  Container homes meet the needs of the region in being durable, energy-efficient, terrain-supported and affordable, and structured as villages outfitted with these high-end, single-family rental units, allow residents to have the freedom of their own space and the camaraderie of a community.

“It was an honor to have the opportunity to contribute to Think Realty Magazine and illustrate how our ekō villages are addressing a void in the housing market in this particular region of the country,” stated Kirk Taylor, President of Land Betterment.  “By bringing this new and innovative solution to the region, its a huge opportunity to provide a true triple bottom-line for all stakeholders.”
