CMC Recognized as a Department of Energy Business Partner for Utility Data Gathering!



As utility cost and awareness rises year by year, it's integral for companies of all industries to invest and develop eco-friendly and sustainable business practices. That's never been more relevant for the multifamily industry than right now. Over the course of the last four plus year, sustainable new multifamily construction has boomed, and we are proud to announce that Corcoran Management has been honored as one of the leaders in this new initiative. 

There are many benefits to energy efficient operations in the multifamily industry. Property managers and owners can expect to see reduced operating costs, lower property consumption bills, better maintenance efficiency, and also knowing they have benefit of marketing and advertising a "green" community to future prospects and residents. 

Corcoran developed the first fully sustainable and eco-friendly apartment community in the Boston area back in 2008. Parkside Commons, located in Chelsea, is an LEED Silver community that consists of 238 apartment homes that feature a number of eco-friendly aspects such as:

-         Low amounts of VOC’s in paints, solvents, cleaning supplies, carpets, and adhesives
-         Dual-flush toilets
-         Low ozone-depleting chemicals in air conditioners
-         Drip irrigation to reduce in-ground irrigation
-         Low-flo devices on showers/sinks
-         Solar panels


Since developing Parkside, Corcoran has also built The Commons at SouthField Highlands which received LEED Silver status in 2013. The newest addition to the SouthField community, The Commons on The Green is aiming for the recognition of LEED Gold this coming year.
