New Green Apartment Building Now Leasing
Dominion Properties has completed Sage on Jackson, located at 1509 North Jackson Street, in Milwaukee. The structure received preliminary approval for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) platinum level certification; the first LEED platinum approval for a market-rate (containing no subsidized housing), multifamily building in Wisconsin that features large, luxury units. Sage on Jackson is now leasing, with only eight units left.
The building was constructed with chemical sensitivities in mind, using zero-volatile-organic-compounds (VOC) paint and no formaldehyde in its wood and mineral wool insulation. There are high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters on the heat pump system, LEED-required ventilation of each unit hourly and the padding under the hallway carpets is made from natural fiber. Other eco-friendly materials include bamboo decks, quartz countertops and low-flow toilets.
Dominion Properties is planning three similar buildings, with a January ground-breaking date for Sage on Prospect, located at 1825 North Prospect Avenue, in Milwaukee.
