We are thrilled to share that three WALSH-built projects are being recognized for the Charles Edison Tax Credit Excellence Awards! Congratulations to our non-profit partners Central City Concern, Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) and Mercy Housing Northwest! These thoughtful organizations and their developments are strengthening communities and providing housing and services to the under-served throughout the Northwest.
Congratulations to the entire design-build team of the Louisa Flowers for the Earth Advantage Green Home Builder of the Year 2020 Awards AND also the LEED® for Homes Project Team Award !! The project also recently achieved LEED for Homes Platinum certification; exceeding its original goal and an energy cost savings by 25% compared to code standards.
We are thinking of the brave men and women who are working tirelessly to manage the Oregon and Washington fires. Our hearts go out to all of those displaced or effected due to the fires — our #walshcofamily, trade partners and friends throughout the Northwest.
Wishing you all a safe a happy Labor Day!
The Frye Hotel Apartments historic renovation for Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) has seen major enhancements over the last few months. The 11-story, 234 unit occupied renovation project has been successfully managed by the team during interior renovations and should be complete by year end with the exterior soon after. We have been finishing up the grand staircase as well as turning over a few units on the top floors of the building.
We are thrilled to receive the Earth Advantage Green Builder of the Year award for the innovative Blackburn Center!
We would like to congratulate Wesley Homes on receiving a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy for Phase II of their Des Moines Senior community!
Phase II includes 151 apartment homes over a structured parking garage, with significant amenities to support the well-being of residents including fitness, dining and other community spaces.
