The community at Washington Village
Designed for Ecological SustainabilityWashington Village is built to meet many of the latest green building standards. We started with a 100-year-old schoolhouse, and beautifully repurposed it, demanding fewer new construction materials. The new Washington Village buildings are designed for efficiency – using quality materials and appliances to save water and energy.
- LEED-ND Certified (Pending): The first national standard for neighborhood design, Washington Village is designed to meet U.S. Green Building Council standards for integrating the principles of new urbanism, green building, and smart growth. Learn more.
- Built Green: Colorado-based governments and homebuilders created this designation to encourage sustainable construction. Tough, long lasting materials avoid ending up in landfills. Efficient faucets, toilets, lighting and insulation save water and energy. Smart landscaping uses less water. Learn more.
- Energy Star: This government-backed rating system means that your home in Washington Village is built to save money and use substantially less energy for heating, cooling and appliances. Learn more.
Wonderland Hill Development Company is in process of obtaining historic landmark designation for Washington school. The school building will have improvements that preserve it as an icon of the neighborhood.
