USGBC Recognizes MetroMark as LEED Gold Certified!



Developing and managing apartment communities that meet today’s sustainable standards is something that we take great pride in here at Corcoran Management Company. In 2007 Parkside Commons became the first LEED-certified multifamily apartment community in New England to be recognized for such an honor. Since then, Corcoran has developed three more LEED-certified communities and have set initiatives at older established communities by retrofitting and updating physical aspects to meet modern standards.

We are extremely honored and proud to announce that MetroMark, a new high-end apartment community infused with charm and personality in Jamaica Plain, has been named as Corcoran’s newest LEED certified community!

The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) recognized MetroMark as LEED Gold certified, an honor that highlights our efforts in energy efficient design, water efficiency, reusable materials, neighborhood impact and many more small factors that help leave a positive contribution to the environment. Another large factor in helping MetroMark receive this honor is the close proximity to public transit and outdoor biking/walking trails for residents to get to work via methods other than their own automobile. The MBTA’sForest Hills Station is adjacent to the entrance of the community while the Southwest Corridor Bike Path is located behind the property and can get residents to downtown points throughout Boston.
