The Louisa Flowers achieves LEED for Homes Platinum

The Louisa Flowers, Portland's largest affordable housing development in the last 50 years, has recently achieved LEED for Homes Platinum certification! The 12-story, 240-unit mixed-use residential building surpassed the original project goal of LEED for Homes Gold, and exceeds energy code standards by 24%. A few sustainable design strategies that contributed to this achievement include the use of local materials with low-emissions and high-recycled content, high-efficiency systems, and the site's close proximity to public transportation.
