Downtown apartment projects hits a top sustainability goal

Boise Regional Realtors

The Fowler building in downtown Boise may look slate grey on the outside – but it’s “Gold” inside.

Developer LocalConstruct announced the project snagged a LEED Gold certification from the US Green Building council – the second-highest level sustainability certification available.

LocalConstruct principal Casey Lynch said it’s the first mid-rise apartment complex in Boise to obtain the status, and “one of the few buildings in Boise as a whole.”

Lynch also pointed out that the Fowler is now 95% leased.

To obtain the certification, the Fowler has a number of features – including high-efficinecy HAVAC units and appliances, LED lighting, low-flow plumbing and a drought-resistant landscape.  LocalConstruct also says it diverted 81% of waste generated from building the project away from the landfill.

“Environmental sustainability will continue to be a focus of ours on future projects like The Cartee and we hope other developers in Boise will also incorporate sustainability into their programs,” Lynch said.
