Lincoln Common is proud to announce receipt of final Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)! The LEED rating system, developed by the USGBC, is the foremost program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and energy performance.
Of the six buildings at Lincoln Common that applied for certification, four received Silver Certification, including The Apartments at Lincoln Common residential towers, and two received Gold Certification.
LEED certification recognizes the commitment to sustainability on behalf of the developers, McCaffery and Hines. A cornerstone of the project’s vision is to provide residents and tenants with the highest quality experience through the incorporation of environmentally sound and reductive design elements, including low-flow fixtures, low-emitting paints and coatings, and Energy Star-rated equipment. Residents and tenants also benefit from improved air quality, sustainable landscaping, and locally sourced construction materials, furniture and finishes.
