1521 receives LEED Silver certification

By on February 27, 2010 in Condo News, Real Estate with 2 Comments

Seattle’s luxury 1521 Condominium announced it has received LEED Silver certification. According to its news release:

…95 percent of construction and demolition waste was recycled. It also has energy efficiencies such as double-pane low-E glass windows and high-efficiency lighting in common areas; and water efficiencies such as dual-flush toilets, low-flow showerheads and limited landscaping that requires little irrigation.

To celebrate, OPUS Northwest, is giving away a Smart fortwo car with purchases that close by May 31, 2010.

The certification is well deserved and the homes are beautiful, but I just don’t think buyers will really care about smart cars cluttering up the garage. On the other hand, for many owners, 1521 is a second residence so it might be nice to have some wheels to scoot about town in.

  1. Isn’t it great to see more and more builders taking green issues and environmental sustainability seriously? I feel strongly that it is encouraging to see that some of the property buying public are as well!

    It is nice that some developer delivers on their promises. 5th & madison has been occupied since Nov 07 and the developer still has not delivered on the promised LEED certification. I wish 1521 developer would give 5th & madison some directions on how to acquire LEED certification. If Seattle government was so supportive of green developement, they should step in and fine developers who promise LEED certification and fail to deliver.
