The luxury apartment developer has properties located in nine U.S. markets: Atlanta; Austin, Texas; Chicago; Dallas; Denver; Houston; Seattle; South Florida; and Southern California. Forty properties—more than 50% of its portfolio—are LEED certified. Eight of those are Platinum, 20 are Gold, 11 are Silver, and one is LEED certified. Eighteen others are currently in the process of certification.

AMLI builds environmentally responsible apartment communities and offers amenities and green initiatives that allow residents to live more sustainably and to embrace a healthy lifestyle.

The company brings the sustainability conversation to the forefront, training on-site staff so they can talk to prospective residents about the health benefits, utility savings, and lower environmental footprint of a green home. LEED has become a core part of AMLI’s economic models, operational management, and civic responsibility.

Last year, AMLI Buckhead, in Georgia, achieved LEED Platinum, due in part to an innovative approach to site design, which enabled the firm to create a 1.5-acre park for the local community that AMLI Buckhead maintains. That approach ties into the company's ongoing commitment to its residents and their neighborhoods.
