For the first time in Greenbuild’s 10-year history, the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo will be held in beautiful, green building-heavy San Francisco and fittingly enough, the venue, the Moscone Center, just recently achieved LEED Gold certification following an extensive facelift and renovation. At Thursday’s Greenbuild Residential Summit, perhaps the most anticipated honors, the LEED for Homes Awards, will be presented. Here are a few of the winners:
- Project of the Year Award: Place of the Hidden Waters Community Longhouse, Puyallup Tribal Housing Authority; Puyallup, Wash.
- Outstanding Multifamily Project: Eco Modern Flats, Specialized Real Estate Group (developer); Fayetteville, Ark.
- Outstanding Affordable Housing Project: Rio Vista Apartments, Adobe Communities (developer); Los Angeles, Calif.
- Outstanding Affordable Developer: Avesta Housing for Oak Street Lofts. Portland, Maine.
