Since its founding in 1919, Korman has been a leader in innovation in apartment living. Korman’s current sustainable lifestyle initiatives include: Modernista Apartments which offer Eco and Earth-Friendly design and renewable materials; Smoke-Free Apartments which include increased indoor air quality for healthy living; Micro Apartments designed with transformable spaces for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint; Bike Share programs that promote exercise and reduced carbon emissions; and Common Ground Community Gardens offering residents the opportunity to grow organic vegetables, herbs, and fresh flowers.

Korman Residential is implementing several energy efficiency programs to meet the goals of the Better Buildings Challenge.
