Developers moved the first pieces of dirt today at a site that will soon house a 98-unit, six-story apartment building in Newcastle.

SolTerra, a fast-growing design, build and services firm with the mission of creating sustainable, livable and innovative buildings, broke ground on Atlas, its first apartment project in the state.

Members of the SolTerra team break ground on Atlas, a new LEED Platinum-designed mixed-use apartment building in Newcastle.

Atlas, located behind the Newcastle Library, is a mixed-use LEED Platinum-designed building. LEED certification represents the premier mark of achievement in green building.

“This is going to be the first LEED platinum mid-rise building on the entire Eastside,” said SolTerra co-founder Brian Heather. “It’s a really cool project that we’re getting to bring to the community.”

The building will include underground parking for residents and Newcastle Library patrons. There is 2,000 square feet for ground-floor retail space.

Atlas will feature lush green living walls, eco-roofs, a large storm water retention facility, roof top solar, and private and public roof terraces.

Each SolTerra project has a special touch. In Atlas, each unit will be equipped with bookshelves, a nod to the apartment building’s neighbor.

“It’s been an amazing city to work with,” Heather said of Newcastle. “The community has been really receptive of the project. We just can’t really imagine a better place to get going.”

Atlas is set to be completed the summer of 2016.

We’ll have more about Atlas in the Aug. 7 Newcastle News.
