Sustainability is our way of life.

We are committed to integrating sustainable practices into the development of our properties that make sense for our residents and the environment.

The majority of our properties are Green Certified by the NAHB Research Center, which rates and recognizes multi-family properties that meet national standards in sustainability. In order to be certified, a property must meet a certain number of rigorous practices in six green building categories, which takes careful planning and valued partnerships.

The Haven Apartment Communities are proud to have earned recognition in Maryland and Virginia for building green certified apartment communities. The Haven at Odenton Gateway in Maryland was the first NAHB Research Center Green Certified community in the state to achieve the Silver Standard and Stonefield Commons in Virginia holds the Bronze Standard.
