After our success with The Sage (LEED Platinum), we (Dan and Bill) wanted to create a multi-family housing option that utilized our site in the best manner and be a long-term investment since we were also going to remain the owners. We balanced environment, economy and equity in this project, creating housing that uses sustainable materials, maintains low maintenance and utility bills, and has affordable rents.
