AHC Inc., a leading developer of affordable housing, is pleased to announce that its apartment community The Apex has won the Building Sustainability Award for Multifamily New Construction Project of the Year. The award recognizes the region’s leaders in high-performance construction with a focus on projects, programs, and initiatives that represent the future of sustainable building.
Viridiant, one of the largest regional green building programs in the country, honored its award recipients during its virtual Building Sustainability Conference & Awards on September 29th.
“It is truly an honor to receive this award from Viridiant,” said Tim Craft, construction manager at AHC Inc. “We are excited to be able to share these environmental benefits with the 256 families who live at the Apex. AHC is proud that we can develop properties that not only reduce our environmental impact, but also improve the quality of life for the people who live in our affordable apartment communities.”
The Apex features the largest solar panel array on a multifamily apartment building in Northern Virginia. The EarthCraft Gold designated property also includes a variety of other environmentally conscious features, such as a green roof and energy-efficient appliances and community, and most importantly, the low- and moderate-income who live in the affordable apartment community.
“We are so thankful to Viridiant for this award,” added Susan Cunningham, Interim CEO of AHC Inc. “We are also grateful to our partners at The Apex for making this property a leader in sustainable building, including Arlington County, MTFA, Harkins Builders, Capital One, Virginia Housing, Hudson Housing Capital, and Prospect Solar.”
