Sustainable Development


For nearly two decades, the housing industry has recognized NHT Communities' projects as a benchmark of sustainable preservation as we were an early adopter of the green-building practices that are common requirements today.

Through our Sustainability Programs we expand our commitment to create healthy communities for our residents and introduce energy solutions that benefit the environment and a property’s financial performance.  Ranging from simple utility conservation techniques to on-site sustainable energy production through resident education and engagement, we seek to be a developer and an innovator.  From our corporate office to our properties, we have received certifications from the U.S. Green Building Council (LEED), Enterprise Green Communities, EarthCraft Multifamily, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Better Buildings Challenge.

We go above and beyond what is expected to fulfill our goals in sustainable development.  We aim for every NHT Communities building to serve as a standard of excellence for developers of environmentally healthy communities.
