Around 6500 athletes and officials will stay in the Village during what will be the largest multi-sport event ever held in Scotland. After the Games, the 700 low carbon houses will be re-fitted and made available for sale and rent.
City Legacy, in partnership with Glasgow City Council, has delivered homes with an EcoHomes 'excellent rating', which produce 60% fewer carbon emissions than tradionally-built homes. The properties feature solar thermal panels and building materials were sourced locally to minimise the environmental impact of transportation and to boost the local economy.
The Village also has a district heating and energy system, which generates electricity for the Village and provides heating and hot water through underground pipes.
Every home has a heating unit connected to the system rather than an individual boiler, allowing maintenance and repairs to be carried out without entering the properties.
The centralised combined heat and power system should result in bills around 40% lower than could be achieved using any other power system, cutting emissions and reducing the chances of fuel poverty.
Ed Monaghan, spokesman for the City Legacy consortium, said: "It continues to be a challenging time for the housebuilding sector but City Legacy is working hard to deliver quality products, innovation and new initiatives, efforts which have been recognised by our peers."
The Village, which is at the heart of one of Europe's largest regeneration areas, was designed in consultation with athletes. It will include shops and recreation areas, a dining hall, medical facility and other amenities for the use of the athletes and officials.
Work started on the massive site, opposite the Emirates Arena, in August 2009 and will be finished next January.
The house types on offer include apartments, terraced houses, semi-detached homes, townhouses and detached homes, ranging from two-bedrooms to four-bedrooms.
