MERCY RIDGE RETIREMENT COMMUNITY TO CELEBRATE 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY
BECOMES THE FIRST LEED® SILVER CERTIFIED EXISTING RETIREMENT COMMUNITY IN THE UNITED STATES
Mercy Ridge Retirement Community will celebrate its 10-year anniversary and will set the stage for green senior living announcing that it is one of the first established retirement communities in the United States to become LEED® Silver certified. Mercy Ridge, located in Timonium, Maryland, partnered with CQI Associates, LLC, a Columbia, Maryland-based energy and environmental management-consulting firm to complete the LEED® for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance™ certification. As a result, Mercy Ridge earned a LEED Silver from the U.S. Green Building Council® (USGBC).
On Monday, July 11, 2011 Mercy Ridge will be hosting an anniversary celebration on campus from 3-5PM and will be presented with the LEED Silver certification from the USGBC. Festivities will also include a champagne toast and music provided by the Bagpipers.
Located in one of Baltimore’s premier neighborhoods, Mercy Ridge combines the charm of the country with the convenience of an urban lifestyle. The community features a 32-acre campus with gorgeous private apartment residences where residents enjoy a wealth of first-class amenities and personalized services. This unparalleled retirement lifestyle is a joint venture of Mercy Health Services and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimore.
