Village Named Best New Green Project in Region
The Village, SUNY Oswego's newest residential community, picked up another honor in May at the "A Time to Build" awards ceremony in Liverpool.
First Niagara Bank sponsors the competition, which it calls Central New York's most comprehensive development/construction/real-estate awards program.
The townhouse complex near Glimmerglass Lagoon on campus won in the Best Green Project-New category. Hueber-Breuer Construction Co. entered The Village for the award. The other two finalists for best new green project were Old Forge Arts Center and King & King Architects' green roof in Syracuse.
The "A Time to Build" program considers projects in Central New York, Mohawk Valley, the Finger Lakes, Greater Binghamton and the North Country, First Niagara, a banking and financial services company, said on a website devoted to the program.
The Village won gold certification in January in the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Homes program.
