GLJ has a firm commitment to green building. Since day one we have sought eco-friendly construction techniques and materials for our projects wherever possible.

Our philosophy is that green living is about healthy, connected, social and responsible living. Whether this means looking to cutting-edge sustainable architecture or simply providing our residents with bicycles for car-free weekends, we take a broad approach to green building and look for progressive answers big and small.       

Here are some of the ways we’re building green

Community-conscious designs

Building in transit oriented locations

Energy efficient technology and appliances

Water-saving fixtures and native landscaping

Materials and finishes that promote healthy indoor air quality

Solar technology

Promoting bike friendly residences, neighborhoods and commutes
