The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) last month named the recipients of its 2009 LEED for Homes Awards, recognizing projects, developers and home builders who have demonstrated leadership in the residential building marketplace. The awards were presented in November during the 2009 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo held in Phoenix, Ariz. The 2009 award categories recognize innovative projects, production builders, single family projects, affordable housing projects, affordable developers, multifamily projects and an overall commitment to LEED for Homes. The Columbia Housing Authority received the Outstanding Affordable Developer award for its Rosewood Hills project in Columbia, SC. Rosewood Hills features a diverse mix of apartments, townhomes, senior citizen housing and single family homes catering to a range of incomes.
“This year’s winners have set themselves apart for exhibiting exceptional leadership within the residential community and for their steadfast commitment to green homebuilding,” said Nate Kredich, Vice President, Residential Market Development. “These innovators will help transform the market toward more healthy, high performing homes that are regarded as some of the best in the country.”
