Green Building Mandates

We've been doing green building for quite some time, and we're glad to hear that Governor Kate Brown is also supporting it through green building mandates. We believe in building a community that consciously takes steps to leave a lighter footprint on the earth. Our homes are built with healthy materials that have energy efficiency in mind. Whether it's building a home on the geothermal loop or installing solar panels to generate energy, our mission is to live healthy and live better together. We also have an electric station for cars to power up on cleaner fuel. With the ... Read more

Groundbreaking Lot 23

Why is breaking ground so fun? It means that the building is starting and there are so many possibilities! We have just broken ground on Lot 23, John Muir Loop. The plans are for a wonderful LEED Certified home with Net Zero potential. It’s a spacious 2-level, 4 bedroom, and 2.5 bath.

Healthy Urban Forests

At Pringle Creek Community, we understand how important nature is for the health of our community. It only makes sense that adding more trees to urban areas help make our community even healthier. That's why we have over a 1/3 of our development dedicated to green space. This includes cedar groves, orchards, and much more. There's something awe-inspiring about looking up at a tree that's almost 10 times bigger than you. It makes you think big, and reach for the sky. We are innovative for many reasons, and nature is definitely a major inspiration for what we do. The Reason ... Read more

Green Building Catches On

At Pringle Creek Community, we’ve been doing green building since the beginning. We get that it’s where the future of building is going, and we also adhere to the highest of green building standards with every home being LEED certified. It comes as no surprise that more builders are beginning to follow these practices that we have been advocating since we were founded.   GREEN BUILDING CATCHES ON NAHB, Dodge study: Third of builders report building green on more than 60% of portfolio.
