Alesonor has achieved the LEED Community Platinum Precertification for Amber Forest complete suburb, which is under development near Bucharest. This has become the fourth project in Europe obtaining the Platinum precertification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
The precertification confirms that Amber Forest has fulfilled all the requirements of LEED Cities and Communities: Plan and Design.
“Our vision is to create a community that would set a new standard for sustainable living in Romania and inspire others to follow and develop more sustainable projects. We are creating a complete community where residents can enjoy a high-quality life while being mindful for the environment. Designing and building a community that meets the highest standards of sustainability requires a deep understanding of the principles of sustainable design and the use of cutting-edge technology and materials,” says Leonidas Anastasopoulos, Managing Partner of Alesonor.
The certification process is coordinated by Arch. Tamara Dogariu, LEED AP ND sustainability consultant.
“Cities and communities pursuing LEED certification are firmly committed to reducing carbon emissions, promoting ecological vitality, and enhancing the well-being of their residents. Amber Forest’s determination to establish a high-performance benchmark may serve as a model for all. I take pride in supporting Alesonor, a developer that steadfastly prioritizes sustainability and the improved quality of life for its residents,” added Arch. Tamara Dogariu, LEED AP ND sustainability consultant.
Amber Forest is developed on a 31-hectare land plot and will feature over 700 green villas and apartments, as well as facilities for residents.
