Vernon Hills Patch, October 5, 2015
The Oaks of Vernon Hills, a luxury garden-style apartment community in Vernon Hills, Illinois, has earned Silver LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, announced Chicago-based developer REVA Development Partners and Chicago-based general contractor Kinzie Builders.
“As the developer of one of the only LEED-certified residential communities in the northern suburbs, we are very proud of our achievement,” said Matt Nix, principal of REVA Development Partners. “But we are just as excited for what this means for our residents, such as better air quality, more efficient apartment homes, and lots of green space for everyone to enjoy.”
“Since we began working with REVA, this highly regarded certification has been one of our most important goals in the design and construction of The Oaks,” said Steve Spinell, principal of Kinzie Builders. “We are very happy with the level of planning and attention to detail that went into creating one of the greenest residential rental communities in suburban Chicago.”
