The USGBC has named Hassalo on Eighth in Portland, Oregon, as its 2017 LEED Homes Project of the Year. The award seeks to recognize “projects, architects, developers and homebuilders who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and innovation in the residential green building marketplace.”
FROM THE USGBC:
“Developed by American Assets Trust, designed by GBD Architects and constructed by Turner Construction, Hassalo on Eighth is a LEED Platinum mixed-use, dense development that creates a vibrant, 24-hour neighborhood for people to live, work and play. With more than a million square feet of new construction spread across three buildings, this project covers apartments, parking, an outdoor urban plaza and North America’s largest bike hub with space for 900 bicycles. Site-specific strategies include: rainwater harvesting and treatment; on-site wastewater treatment and re-use with infiltration; district energy; natural daylighting and access to public transportation.”
Glumac teamed with GBD Architects, American Assets Trust, as well as Biohabitats, PLACE, and Puttman Infrastructure Home to bring this project to fruition, and it is now on track for a 2.4 year payback.
