Congratulations to Celadon at 9th & Broadway for winning the 2016 Gold Nugget Grand Award – Sustainable Residential Community.
Builder: Turner Construction Company
Developer: BRIDGE Housing Corporation
Architect: SVA Architects and Studio E
Judges Statement: Designed to target LEED Gold compliance, this 17-story tower provides 250 units of affordable housing for special-needs populations, and shows that designing with a social conscience can, and should, include designing with an environmental one as well. The innovative use of photovoltaics on the south façade adds visual interest while generating power for the building’s community areas. Add on the rooftop solar hot water system, eco-roof with drought-tolerant plantings, and integrated gardens, and the residents – who range from at-risk youth to seniors – are not just tenants in a building, but members of a community that serves as a shining example of how sustainable housing can be integrated into the urban fabric.
We are proud to have been a part of Celadon’s branding process including the Community Name Development, Logo Design and Signage.
