Living Beyond Green is Sterling’s commitment to developing green student housing that meets the highest standards of performance and sustainability.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®)

LEED is an international recognized green building certification system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The voluntary LEED program provides third-party verification that a project meets guidelines set by the USGBC for achieving high performance and sustainability through green design, construction, operation and maintenance.

It encourages green building practices and recognizes those meeting the standards for improved energy saving, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, indoor environmental quality, stewardship of resources, and a sensitivity to the impact on the environment.

Combining luxury living with eco-friendly design, Sterling Housing is leading the way in building modern student housing communities. With over 60 years of real estate and development experience, The Dinerstein Companies legacy of quality and success was among the first apartment developers in the nation to seek LEED designation. LEED certification provides independent verification of a building's green features. This allows for the design, construction, operations and maintenance of resource-efficient, high-performing, healthy, cost-effective buildings. Today, TDC provides the ultimate in luxury, eco-friendly apartments that offer healthier, cleaner, more sustainable homes and amenity spaces for residents. Make a LEED certified Sterling Housing community your new home today.
