Alexandria is an old city in the Commonwealth of Virginia, located along the Western bank of the Potomac River. An old 1910 warehouse in the city managed to get a Gold level certification and got converted in eight beautiful condos, the first LEED units in the state.

Dubbed the Cromley Lofts, with large, wall-less, light filled spaces that brings in the rustic, industrial, and modern while still achieving a sense of warmth, the building retains much of its history with those brick columns still in place.

However the eco-factor is what gets us drooling. It has a green roof, Georgian pine floors (or cork flooring) and bamboo cabinetry, low-voc carpets, Energy Star appliances and those smart dual-flush toilets.

Though the condos may be out of our league for most of us – $535,000 to $645,000, they sure bring in a unique approach to green architecture, isn’t it?
