SolTerra designs, builds and leases LEED Platinum apartments in Seattle and Portland, and we are one of the largest installers of residential solar, living walls and green roofs in the Pacific Northwest. Our mission is to build beautiful structures to connect people to nature, create community in urban environments and make a positive impact on the earth.
We believe autonomy quickens the pace of innovation, tomorrow is shaped by the doers of today, and when you reconnect people with nature, you reinvigorate the human spirit.
We are demonstrating renewable energy and sustainable construction are both feasible and beneficial to individuals and society alike.
Our apartments are designed to improve our residents’ everyday lives by giving them green, healthy places to call home. Through our solar, living wall and green roof designs, we’re helping to build better communities and reduce the impact humans have on the environment.
We strive to make ecological dreams a reality by changing the world, one building and one neighborhood at a time.
