Sustainability

We believe a focus on sustainability creates both a clean environment and long-term value to our buildings over time. We are committed to meeting or exceeding both federal and local guidance for clean and efficient energy, solar power and climate change adaptation in our development projects and ongoing operations once delivered. We are currently designing our projects to achieve LEED Platinum certification and wherever possible, ILFI Net Zero Carbon rating. We feel a responsibility to our residents and neighbors to push the envelope and build with the environment and the surrounding communities top of mind.
