We are so proud to announce that our apartment community has succeeded in achieving LEED Gold designation from the US Green Building Council! LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. The US Green Building Council set up the LEED system to measure the environmental sustainability of buildings. To receive certification, the building must go through a rigorous application and review process.
There is a wide range of sustainable features that contributed toward this achievement, including a green roof, a rainwater harvesting system, a rooftop solar array, Energy Star appliances, energy efficient lighting, and green label-certified paints and finishes. Being located just two blocks from the NoMa-Gallaudet Metro Station, three blocks from Union Station, our easy access to transit and resident’s ability to take advantage of reserved bike parking and electric car charging stations adds to the eco-friendly nature of our community.
Thank you to all of our residents for choosing 2M and contributing to a more eco-friendly future for all.
A Green Community
