Building Beautifully and Sustainably

Part of our development strategy is planning for a sustainable and environmentally friendly future. We target LEED® ( Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design ) standards with our new developments, and have incorporated the latest technologies into our designs to promote efficiency. LEED® is an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings and is awarded by the Canada Green Building Council.

  • MAPLE received LEED® Silver Certification (LEED® for New Construction) in 2022. The certificate acknowledges the 2018 project has achieved the required prerequisites and credits under the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design ( LEED®)


  • The Grainery Lofts, received LEED® Gold Certification (LEED® for New Construction) in 2014. This achievement marked the first privately owned and developed, multi-unit residential building east of Montreal to achieve LEED® Gold status. The building was constructed with eco-friendliness in mind. By restoring an under-utilized urban site, we were able to create an environmentally conscious building this is close to green transportation alternatives.
  • MAPLE, our latest, mixed-use development and Rental Development of the Year 2018  ( Canadian Federation of Apartment Associations ) will avoid the inefficiencies caused by thermal bridging—an unwanted heat transfer between the exterior and interior of a building via inefficient building materials—by installing cutting-edge Schöck Isokorb thermal break systems. This will ensure the comfort of our residents at all times, while simultaneously reducing heating and cooling costs and our overall environmental footprint. It will also help the building maintain structural integrity for longer. View sustainable features video HERE > 
  • CURVE at SOUTH PARK received LEED® Gold Certification in September 2023. Achieving this certification required Southwest to fulfill strict, measurable benchmarks and earn credits in five categories – sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy & atmosphere, materials & resources, and indoor environmental quality. The rental development, designed by Norman Flynn Design and Page + Steele/IBI Group Architects, is the third building within our portfolio to achieve LEED® status reflecting our unwavering commitment to green initiatives.
