Green Details

Going green isn't a fashion fad, it's here to stay. Entrepreneurs all over the world, including Aaina Jain of Blu & Blue are making products that are not only "butter soft" but safe for children to wear. Right down to the selection of buttons. At Pringle Creek Community, we pay attention to the details. From choosing sustainable materials for building our homes to roaming around our urban farm and being able to pluck ripe fruit right off the branch (or vine), we believe in the importance of a healthy and strong community.

Mister Whiskers LED

Energy efficiency now seems to be an every day household term. It's not surprising that there's now an LED light that also can be used to kill bacteria in your kitchen. At Pringle Creek Community, we're always looking for ways to innovate.

LEED Platinum Building

At Pringle Creek Community, we built the first LEED Platinum Certified community center in the nation, so we know how awesome it is to build to that level of sustainability. Our community center, called Painters Hall, serves as a resident amenity as well as being available to rent out to the public. This overlay of private vs. public use is a wonderful mix of cross pollination. Painters Hall hosts resident activities geared around health and wellness, be it yoga to become more present or book club for socializing and strengthening bonds within community. Green building is also a part ... Read more
