Owings Mills, MD – Today, Wishrock celebrates its first Enterprise Green Communities Certified* development, Timbercroft Townhomes. Timbercroft is a multifamily affordable housing development in Owings Mills, Maryland, which was recently redeveloped —
resulting in reduced energy use, improved building durability, and a healthier living environment. Wishrock received support from the State of Maryland and BG&E for building upgrades to improve energy efficiency, and proudly participated in the “EmPOWER Maryland” initiative. Together with the project’s design and development team, financial partners, public officials, and residents, Wishrock will host a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the project’s success.
At Timbercroft and across its portfolio, Wishrock is fulfilling its commitment to reducing consumption and increasing energy and water efficiency, as well as providing low-income communities with a healthy and sustainable living environment.
*Enterprise Green Communities Criteria and Certification promotes energy and water efficiency, healthy housing, and resource conservation. In order to receive this national certification, an affordable housing developer must meet a number of criteria involving integrative design, location and neighborhood fabric, site improvements, water and energy conservation, and green building materials.
