Creating sustainable places requires foresight and a long-term perspective.

It’s about choices, not sacrifices. The payoffs can be immediate and the rewards get better over time. Such is the nature of most paradigm shifts: they eventually become the new normal.

Regardless of property type, sustainability has been a guiding principle for our work since our inception. We consider the benefits of building sustainably to be twofold: it is our social responsibility to conserve resources, and when implemented correctly, the result is a more valuable investment. From a functional rain garden in San Francisco to Colorado’s first private green roof, we’ve successfully incorporated elements of sustainability into our designs and construction.

Recently, we developed a 100,000 square foot mixed-use “Net-Zero” project powered by a full solar roof array and an east-facing, exterior solar wall, the first of its kind in Colorado. As the future of real estate comes into focus, long-term value can not exist without a focus on sustainability.

We also realize that a building’s functional components aren’t the sole determinants of sustainability. A truly sustainable community depends on the behavior of those who inhabit it. In keeping with the Net Zero mission of our latest projects, we’ve created property management strategies and community guidelines for energy use.

Transportation and mobility are also key components of sustainability. Our buildings include car share vehicles and bike shares, charging stations for electric vehicles, and proximity to public transportation to incentivize tenants and guests to commute sustainably. A building is a sum of its parts, and its occupants are the core.
