Hankin Group, a Chester County real estate development company dedicated to quality and sustainability, announced that their newest apartment building at Claremont on the Square has been awarded LEED Gold.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the most widely used green building rating system in the world and an international symbol of excellence. Claremont on the Square, a luxury apartment community located within Hankin Group’s Eagleview Town Center, consists of 3 buildings. The first two buildings were constructed in 2014 and the final third building, built in 2021, opened its doors to residents in April of this year.
The Claremont on the Square community, managed by Hankin Apartments, consists of 116 luxury apartment units and a lavish outdoor courtyard, added with the new building, featuring outdoor seating, fire-pit, games, outdoor television, grilling stations, and more. The third building attaining its LEED Gold Certification is an advancement from the previous two buildings who were both awarded LEED Silver Certification in 2015.
Peter Templeton, president, and CEO of USGBC commented on Hankin Group’s commitment to sustainability. Receiving this certification speaks to Hankin Group’s dedication to leveraging solutions with environmental benefits that can be passed down from generation to generation.
“Achieving LEED certification is more than just implementing sustainable practices. It represents a commitment to making the world a better place and influencing others to do better,” said Templeton. “Given the extraordinary importance of climate protection and the central role buildings play in that effort, Hankin Group is creating a path forward through their LEED certification.”
Lance Hillegas, VP of Sustainable Development and Design, and Laura Maiale, Development and Sustainability Manager, played key roles in the LEED Gold certification of Claremont on the Square’s new building. It is evident that Hankin Group has sustainability at the forefront of all they do and that both the world and their residents benefit from these practices. LEED-certified buildings like Claremont on the Square are making the world a better place and setting a standard for others to aspire to.
“Sustainable development is a core value at Hankin Group. We take pride in constructing residences that are energy and water efficient, thermally comfortable, and constructed with environmentally friendly and locally sourced materials,” said Maiale. “Residents can see and feel the benefits of living in a LEED Gold residence. The Claremont on the Square project is no exception, and we are happy to add another green building to the Eagleview community. We appreciate that this certification recognizes Hankin Group’s dedication to both quality and sustainability.”
