Station House sets green goals

A transit-oriented development co-located with the Capitol Hill light rail station, Station House is our greenest new construction project to date. 

At Community Roots Housing, one of our core values is to responsibly steward our properties while protecting the environment. Station House’s construction exemplifies these values – triple-paned windows, solar panels, and a green roof are just a few of the environmentally friendly features of the building. Station House’s insulation also exceeds code to boost energy efficiency while reducing noise pollution.

Construction focused on utilizing healthy materials such as low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint to bolster indoor air quality and ensure our residents are staying in the healthiest homes possible. Community Roots hopes to achieve LEED Mid-Rise Platinum status, the highest and most selective of the four rankings. LEED promotes standards that closely aligns with our own organizational goals; in fact, according to LEED: “We believe green buildings are the foundation of something bigger: helping people, and the communities and cities they reside in – safely, healthily and sustainably thrive.”
