The Yards at 3 Crossings is one of the most innovative and sustainable apartment residences in Pittsburgh. Located in the Historic Strip District, The Yards offer a wide range of services including a 24-hour concierge service, fitness center, club room, salt water pool & hot tub, dog park, riverfront trail, communal herb garden and so much more.
The Yards at 3 Crossings aims to provide the ultimate sustainable experience and is designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification. They were credited by LEED in their excellence in sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, innovation in design, and regional priority.
The residence buildings were constructed using sustainable building materials with over 85% of the construction waste being recycled, as opposed to being put in a landfill. Some of their many sustainable features include a green roof to minimize storm water volume and improve runoff, water-conserving fixtures to reduce water usage by 30%, a building-wide recycling program, Energy Star appliances, high-efficiency lighting, low VOC paints, electric vehicle charging stations, and on-site renewable energy systems.
We are excited to have The Yards at 3 Crossings on board with Pittsburgh Earth Day to help promote sustainable living in Pittsburgh! To learn more about The Yards at 3 Crossings and their sustainability initiatives, visit http://theyardsapts.com/sustainability/.
