IREM Certified Sustainable Property

Energy Star

Our 303,866 SF multi-family apartment community is located in the Murrayhill neighborhood of Beaverton, Oregon. The property, which was built in 1991, has a total of 351 units and 552 bedrooms. The building is an IREM Certified Sustainable Property (“CSP”) and received ENERGY STAR® certifications in both 2019 and 2020.

Our property performed a lighting audit in 2019 as well as an energy audit in 2020. Additionally, in 2019, the property team did a lighting retrofit in all common areas and tenant spaces and replaced 972 incandescent light bulbs with LED bulbs. The property team also educates its residents on energy conservation, suggesting practices that can reduce energy usage such as:

  • Placing a draft stopper under exterior doors
  • Leaving the dishwasher door open to air-dry dishes instead of using the drying function
  • Programming the thermostat to minimize heating and cooling when no one is in the apartment

As a result of these measures taken by both tenants and property management, the site’s energy usage decreased by 19.1% from 2019 to 2020, saving our community about $10,000 in energy costs. In 2019, the property team spent approximately $31,069 on energy costs and in 2020, only spent $21,602. This decrease in energy usage also led to a 15.3% decrease in the property’s total GHG Emissions from 2019 to 2020.


This decrease also led to a 15.3% decrease in the property’s total GHG Emissions from 2019 to 2020.
