On September 21, 2012, our LEED Platinum Plaque was finally hung. 204-206 East Girard Ave has been certified LEED Platinum, the highest level of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). This makes the pair of buildings the first LEED Platinum mixed-use rehab in Pennsylvania. The 5,720-squarefoot project includes two ground-floor storefronts – one of which serves as the office for web design and development company, YIKES, Inc – and four apartments on the second and third floors.
We were so fortunate to have such a great team helping us to meet this goal. Stop by and check out the shining new plaque.

It’s been a long road with a lot of challenges, but we did it! 204-206 East Girard Ave is the FIRST LEED Platinum Mixed-use Rehab in Pennsylvania. LEED Platinum is the highest level of the US Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system.
We are ready to celebrate!
Join us for a plaque mounting ceremony on Friday, September 21, 2012 at 5:30pm at the buildings. The Greensaw folks will mount our LEED plaque to the front of the buildings and we will have a toast.
We are very happy to be working with the folks at Greensaw Design and Build, the general contractor for the project. We share their belief that renovating existing buildings vs. building new, should itself be a recognized factor in sustainable building.
