Join us for a tour of our 2017 LEED Project of the Year, Kreider Commons! The project team will share the story of this historic manufacturing building & how they adapted it into affordable senior living apartments. After the walking tour, happy hour will be held at Downtown Lounge, 734 Cumberland Street, Lebanon. 

Kreider Commons is an innovative, adaptive reuse project in downtown Lebanon that has achieved LEED for Homes Platinum certification. Adapted from the six story former A.S. Kreider Shoe Company's warehouse into 50 one and two- bedroom modern affordable rental apartments for independent seniors aged 62 and older, the attractive brick building has all new systems, two elevators, drive-up entry, on-site parking, a community room with kitchen, library, computer room, grandchild room, and crafts room. All units have energy saving windows, individually controlled heating and cooling systems and all new Energy Star appliances. Kreider Commons achieves exceptional energy performance, especially for a 98-year old building renovated to historic standards. The building exceeds its ASHRAE energy efficiency goals by 45.9%.

Features contributing to this accomplishment include: 

  • Highly efficient heat pumps in each unit 
  • Rooftop solar water heating system 
  • High R-value wall and roof insulation over existing masonry envelope and new aluminum replacement windows 
  • Energy recovery ventilator (ERV) 
  • ENERGY STAR appliances, lighting and bath exhaust fan 
  • Healthy indoor air quality is maintained by the fresh outdoor air supply, exclusive use of low-VOC paints, adhesives and sealants, and low formaldehyde composite woods. Kreider Commons is a fully smoke free facility, which further helps occupant health.
