Easton, PA: Pennrose Neston Heights Senior awarded LEED Silver Cert

Neston Heights Senior, a Pennrose property in Easton, Pa., was recently awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification for its cost-effective and efficient development.  LEED distinction is made by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a non-profit organization devoted to increasing the use of sustainable and green building practices across the country. The Housing Authority of the City of Easton began a partnership with Pennrose in 2007, which led to Neston Heights Senior, previously known as Delaware Terrace, being rebuilt due to physical deterioration, lack of air conditioning, presence of asbestos containing materials, and crime. Wallace Roberts & Todd, Harkins Builders, and T&M Associates also worked in conjunction with Pennrose to design and build the senior living community, which also meets Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency’s Green Building and Energy Star criteria.
