New Rental Communities receive LEED Gold certification

On Oct 23, 2014 under Sustainability

Concert’s Motion and One32 rental communities in downtown Toronto have both recently received coveted LEED Gold certification from the Canadian Green Building Council (CGBC). Awarded only after a comprehensive audit, this rating speaks to the fact that environmentally sustainability was prioritized through every step of these buildings’ design and construction.

According to the CGBC, buildings generate up to 35 per cent of all greenhouse gases while 35 per cent of landfill waste comes from construction and demolition activities. For real estate developers and long-term managers such as Concert, statistics such as these serve to reinforce the importance of acting sustainably.

While the company has been benchmarking its developments against the LEED framework since 2007, it became the company’s explicit mandate to ensure that every new development is constructed to LEED Gold standards or equivalent in 2012. Motion and One32 now stand as two very real testaments to this commitment.
