It's not easy being green, but we feel it's important. Even if one doesn't believe in "global warming", the responsible thing to do is use less resources.

Main Street Village has been designed and built as a green building that qualifies for LEED-NCv2.2 (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for New Construction) certification under the US Green Building Council. The requirements to build a sustainable community are strict, and not easy to achieve.  Click here to find out more about how Main Street Village was built with the environment in mind.
