Our management teams work with residents to meet water, energy, recycling, alternative transportation and community goals. We’ve focused on several areas to achieve a LEED Silver certification:
Water Use & Conservation
Oregon may have a reputation for having an abundance of water, but in reality, its water supply has experienced increased pressure from a growing state population, several years of drought, and low precipitation and snowmelt. North Hollow uses simple ways to conserve precious water including the design of appealing, yet drought tolerant landscaping with drip irrigation systems and planters that naturally capture rainwater that infiltrates the ground slowly. The property uses water efficient fixtures in restrooms, common areas and apartment units.
Sustainable features in the apartment units include large double-pane, low E, insulated windows that provide natural light, high-efficiency systems for lighting and mechanical (HVAC), water-efficient fixtures and Energy Star appliances. Reflective roofing surfaces to reduce heat island effects.
Waste & Recycling

There are recycling facilities on-site for residents and construction waste was safely recycled, reused and disposed of accordingly.
