Mueller was recently recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) as the largest neighborhood in the world and the first in Texas to become certified for Stage 3 LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED ND) Gold under its pilot program. Some of Mueller’s sustainable efforts include rooftop solar panels, thousands of new trees, a water filtration system, native and adaptive plants, construction waste diverted from landfills, energy-efficient buildings, even solar public art.
LEED ND integrates the principles of smart growth, urbanism and green building into the first national system for neighborhood design. LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a development's location and design meet accepted high levels of environmentally responsible, sustainable development.
Here are some of the highlights of Mueller’s sustainability that led to this esteemed recognition:
