Green Neighborhood

The U.S. Green Building Council has awarded the Grandview Yard development Pre-Certification as a LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) Plan, making it one of the first developments in the Midwest to become pre-certified as a LEED-ND Silver Plan community.

Achieving a Pre-Certified LEED-ND Plan identifies Grandview Yard as a pioneering example of sustainable design and demonstrates the developer’s leadership in transforming the development industry. Grandview Yard earned this recognition for excellence in the built environment and a place among the finest developments incorporating the principles of smart growth, urbanism, and green design.

Being a green community means that sustainable principles are considered and incorporated in every aspect of planning, design as well as construction. Ultimately, the goal is to create a neighborhood designed to support a smarter and more sustainable lifestyle through:

  • Expanding awareness of the potential impacts of global warming on the local climate and biodiversity
  • Stimulating a sense of ownership and responsibility for the community within occupants and visitors
  • Empowering occupants and visitors to take actions that contribute to a more sustainable and livable future.
