Terwilliger Pappas announced that Solis Southline has achieved the Silver LEED® Certification.
Solis Southline achieved Silver LEED® Certification for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. Key measurables achieved at Solis Southline include 40% reduced indoor water consumption and 24% cost energy savings. The community was designed so that 90% of all interior spaces have direct line-of-sight to the outdoors and was constructed with over 10% recycled materials.
“Our company is proud to develop properties designed not only to exceed our residents’ expectations, but also to be stewards of the environment and our surrounding community,” said Peter A. Pappas, chief executive officer of Terwilliger Pappas. “Meeting the rigorous demands necessary to achieve LEED Silver demonstrates our commitment to best-in-class design practices and providing exceptional quality to our residents.”
Solis Southline continues to be well-received by discerning renters seeking an elevated living experience in the South End. The community, which welcomed its first residents in May 2017, is over 80% leased and filling its remaining apartment homes quickly.
Founded in 2013, Terwilliger Pappas has completed ten communities. In addition, Terwilliger Pappas has seven communities currently under development and another eight planned starts in Charlotte, Raleigh, Atlanta and Nashville.
LEED is the foremost program for the design, construction and operation of green buildings. Please visit USGBC’s Statistics page for updated statistics.
The LEED rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the foremost program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance. A home can achieve LEED certification under the LEED for Homes program after undergoing a technically rigorous process, including the incorporation of green strategies to achieve efficiency and healthy indoor environments. The sound design and operation of the home is tested and measured using tools like a home energy (HERS) rating and onsite inspections.
