LEED CERTIFIED HOMES

When you consider Harpeth Square’s blend of high function and style with a small-town feel, the pursuit of LEED Certification makes sense.  Attracting local residents and international visitors alike, the Residences will be recognized by the highly acclaimed nonprofit U.S. Green Building Council as a verified high performance building.  LEED stands for “Leadership In Energy & Environmental Design,” and in planning, engineering and constructing the Residences from the ground up, we’ve incorporated all the latest techniques and technologies available.  It’s all about giving you modern comforts, a resilient home, and the peace of mind of living a healthier lifestyle, all in a way that sustains the community and world we all share.
