Green Building Intitative (GBI) Awards The Heights Linden Square Two Green Globes


The Heights Linden Square has been awarded two “green globes” by the Green Building Initiative®, denoting  that the project demonstrates excellent progress in the reduction of environmental impacts and use of environmental efficiency practices.

The Green Building Initiative’s® (GBI) Guiding Principles Compliance (GPC) is based on a site visit and detailed documentation review. A GBI-appointed third-party assessor verifies compliance and awards a Compliance Score and Rating. The Green Building Initiative’s® (GBI) Guiding Principles Compliance (GPC) programs are the first independent assessment and rating programs enabling government agencies to determine levels of compliance with the Guiding Principles, resulting from Executive Order 13514. By assembling the myriad of federal compliance requirements into one program, GPC facilitates the process to improve the sustainability of federally owned, leased or operated buildings.

GPC sets the standard for accuracy, consistency, and credibility through a clear and simple yet robust third-party evaluation process. Our streamlined process and third-party assessors minimizes agency personnel’s time and effort to determine the level of compliance with the Guiding Principles. In addition to recommending improvements prior to construction, assessors provide you with a final assessment at project completion. Hundreds of federal buildings have been assessed using the GBI GPC programs, and now many public and private buildings are set to evaluate.



The Heights Linden Square, located in Gladstone, Missouri just outside Kansas City, features 224 luxury apartment homes and 10,000 square feet of street-front retail space.


Apartment homes at The Heights Linden Square average 942 square feet and include 40 two-level units, each with its own attached single-car garage. Above the two-level apartments are two levels of flats. Parking for those units includes surface parking on the interior of the project and an additional 40 single-car garages. On-street parking is available on three sides of the property for residents and shoppers.


Community amenities include Google FiberTM  broadband service, a state of the art fitness center, tanning salon, cyber cafe, business center, plus a game and leisure center. A resort style pool, featuring a wet deck, is located in the center of the community. In addition, residents enjoy an “outdoor living room,” highlighted by fire pits and commercial grade grills, with accompanying outdoor furniture.

The project was completed in 2015.
