Earlier this summer, SolTerra began construction for a new LEED Platinum-designed apartment building – Atlas in Newcastle, Washington. The company is a fast-growing design+build firm focused on reconnecting people with nature. SolTerra is creating some of the most sustainable, livable, and innovative mixed-use buildings in the Pacific Northwest.

“We are creating cost-effective living spaces for people and families who care about their impact on our planet,” says Brian Heather, co-founder of SolTerra. “Through our mixed-use projects, SolTerra is demonstrating that renewable energy and sustainable development are feasible and beneficial to individuals and society alike,” he added.

The Atlas complex will include 98-units in a 6-story building with underground parking for residents, as well as patrons of the Newcastle Library next door. It also includes two-thousand square feet for ground-floor retail space.
