Boston’s Eco-Friendly Apartments

On Earth Day, events take place all over Boston to discuss how we can be more environmentally conscious.

What many don’t already know is that a majority of the apartment buildings throughout the city, new and old, are extremely environmentally conscious, eco-friendly apartments.

Just over 400 buildings and projects throughout Boston are LEED certified. This means they are constructed and designed using the ‘best-in-class building strategies and practices’ and are labeled through the green building certification program.

This list includes some major eco-friendly apartments, such as the Mosaic on the Riverway. Located in The Longwood Medical Area this luxury condo building is not only beautifully designed, but has obtained a LEED Silver certification for its energy efficient construction.

Another luxury, eco-friendly apartment in the city is The Kensington, a LEED Gold certified building with high-end amenities in Downtown Boston.

The Lancaster, is a LEED Gold certified condominium complex created by Cambridge-based Urban Spaces. This was the first condominium complex in the city to receive the gold level certification for their environmentally conscious construction.

Eco-friendly apartments are a growing trend and LEED certified buildings remain just as luxurious while also protecting our Earth.
