Verdant named Top Projects Awards of 2021 honoree by Finance & Commerce

Verdant was selected as an honoree at the Top Projects Awards of 2021 hosted by Finance & Commerce!

The construction industry faced a myriad of challenges in 2021 ranging from increased costs of materials and labor to rising inflation and supply chain issues. Despite all those challenges, Minnesota builders completed a plethora of projects, including banks, medical facilities, apartments, and more. Among those finished projects, an independent panel selected 51 honorees for Finance & Commerce’s annual top projects awards.

When selecting the projects, the panel of judges looked at the degree of difficulty, creativity in design, innovative construction techniques, cooperation among contractors and management, and sustainability efforts.

Verdant is the first pre-certified, mid-rise, Passive House multifamily building of this construction type in this climate zone. This design follows principles that are geared towards maximizing energy efficiency and can make a building up to 90% more energy efficient than a standard building. Verdant delivers 82 income-restricted apartment homes to the West Side neighborhood of St. Paul.
