Portland Condos Go LEED Platinum

There aren’t too many buildings currently in the United States which can say they’ve been awarded LEED Platinum certification, which is one of the highest forms of green building marks currently available. This is especially true of residential buildings, which is why the folks at Portland, Oregon based 937 Condominiums are particularly happy to have been named just the third high rise condo building in the United States to get this level of designation.

“937 is a premier example of sustainable, green building development and this achievement is the result of a dedicated and experienced team of professionals working toward a common goal of paying homage to the environment, not only in design but in functionality,” said Patrick Kessi, one of 937’s co-developers.
