That’s right, “lessen.” Because Old Town’s first LEED® certified residence means lower environmental impact and lower energy consumption. The Asher has been about green living right from the start: The building design incorporates many environmentally advanced features, and the site was redeveloped using eco-friendly construction methods and materials.
