Belmont, CA, November 2, 2017 – Woodmont Real Estate Services CEO Ron Granville, CPM®, announced today that the property management firm has earned three more IREM® Certified Sustainable Property Designations at multifamily communities managed by the company near Sacramento, the wine country and on the San Francisco Peninsula.
In June of 2016, Waterford Place in Dublin, CA – which is also managed by Woodmont, received recognition as the first apartment community in the United States to be designated as an IREM® Certified Sustainable Property.
The IREM® Certified Sustainable Property (CSP) is a prestigious sustainability certification program that focuses on the role of exceptional real estate management in green building performance. IREM’s sustainability certification provides properties with recognition for resource efficiency and environmental programs. To earn the certification, a property must first meet key baseline requirements, and then earn necessary points across energy, water, health, recycling, and purchasing categories. Tenants and residents increasingly associate environmental performance with quality, so the certification presents a prime opportunity to showcase quality, responsible real estate management.
The three new IREM® certified sustainable communities are the Vineyards at Valley View (El Dorado Hills), The Lodge at Napa Junction (American Canyon) and Sand Cove (Foster City). Vineyards at Valley view is near Folsom Lake, great mountain biking trails and some of Sacramento’s largest employers. The Lodge at Napa Junction is located at the gateway to Napa Valley, while Sand Cove is one of the longest-tenured communities in Woodmont’s management portfolio, which is comprised of over 12,000 apartment homes.
Sand Cove was the first multifamily property in California to be awarded the CSP designation in 2017, making it two consecutive years in which Woodmont had “firsts” in California.
A spokesperson from IREM’s headquarters in Chicago reports that since Woodmont had the first Certified Sustainability Property in the U.S. over a year ago, 94 properties in the U.S. have earned the certification, with 47 of them apartment communities. In California, 14 properties are certified sustainable, seven of which are multifamily.
