Apartments in The Woodlands TX First to Receive LEED Silver Certification

The Millennium Waterway Ave Brings Luxury Green Living to Master Planned Community in the Houston Area

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - January 18, 2011) - The Millennium Waterway Ave became the first apartments in The Woodlands TX to receive the coveted LEED® Silver certification designating it as an eco-friendly building to live in. The new luxury apartments, located just north of Houston, opened last summer.

LEED is an internationally recognized certification program developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to provide guidelines and independent third-party verification of a building's green design, construction and operation. Various levels of certification can be reached by meeting specifications set by the USGBC.

"The Dinerstein Companies, developers of The Millennium Waterway Ave, made a commitment in 2008 to 'Living Beyond Green,' and have worked diligently to develop the finest green apartment communities available," says Misti Morales, Marketing Director for The Dinerstein Companies. "We're pleased to have received LEED Silver for Waterway, and we feel good about offering homes where people can live an eco-friendly lifestyle in a healthier environment without sacrificing modern comforts." 

Amenities of the luxury apartments include a pool plaza with spa, two-story fitness center, resident lounge with gourmet coffee bar, gourmet food and wine tasting events and more. And the new apartment homes are filled with custom finishes and high-end amenities. 

Among the green features are an on-site renewable energy source through rooftop solar panels, improved indoor air quality, optimized energy performance with double low-e windows and increased insulation, onsite recycling programs, preferred parking for fuel efficient vehicles, and much more.

"And the Waterway Ave location is unbeatable," says Morales.

The Woodlands is an award-winning, master-planned, eco-friendly community with thousands of acres of protected green space and an abundance of upscale shopping, dining and entertainment venues. All within commuting distance to Houston. In fact, The Woodlands Express makes commuting into the city effortless.
