ECO Modern Flats Wins Statewide Green Building Award

ECO Modern Flats raised the bar for what people expect of a multifamily development in Northwest Arkansas…

ECO Modern Flats, a newly renovated 96-unit apartment complex in downtown Fayetteville, was named the Most Outstanding Residential Project of the year by the US Green Building Council Arkansas Chapter.  The award was presented earlier this month at the group’s Green Tie Dinner in Little Rock. 

According to Linda K. Smith, the Executive Director of the US Green Building Council’s Arkansas Chapter, a selection committee chose ECO Modern Flats from all the LEED-certified residential projects completed in the state in the past year.  LEED is an independent, third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. 

“ECO Modern Flats raised the bar for what people expect of a multifamily development in Northwest Arkansas,” Smith said. “It has energy and water conservation, but also unique architecture and interior design. It is an outstanding project.”

Jeremy Hudson, CEO of Specialized Real Estate Group, developer of ECO Modern Flats, accepted the award.

“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by the leaders of the green building industry in Arkansas,” he said.  “This project is truly special, and it would not have happened without the creativity and hard work of our dedicated team of design and construction professionals.”

This is the inaugural year for the award, which Smith anticipates will become an annual event.
