RiverClay represents the Rocky Mountain region's first LEED-certified multi-family project. It delivered one of the largest photovoltaic arrays in Denver at the time, offering enough power to light and cool nearly 80 percent of common areas and parking. Based on actual utility data, the typical residence has proven to be 60 percent more energy efficient than a comparable non-LEED residence. With some of the largest balconies in central Denver, they serve as a wonderful amenity and solar shade, reducing summer cooling requirements. The project won the 2008 University of Denver Burns School of Real Estate “Project of the Year,” and won recognition from the Environmental Defense Fund for providing one of the 15 best "Green Business Ideas" of 2008. Despite one of the most challenging environments for condo sales in history, the project sold out in early 2009.
