LEED status

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

We’re proud to announce the achievement of LEED Gold status for Cedars, 745 Fox Street, Bronx. This goal was met by using a combination of passive and active measures to conserve energy and to create a healthy living environment. Highly insulated walls, fiberglass windows, bi-level lighting in common areas, energy star appliances and light fixtures, condensing boilers, and ground source heat pumps (GHP), and a green roof, low VOC paints and adhesives, and high recycled content finishes such as cork and bamboo are a few of the features. Congratulations to Lantern and the team it created, for being a leader in bringing sustainable design to supportive and affordable housing. UAI is fully committed to this effort and brings responsible green design to all its work.
