Investing in Wellness: Clarion Assets Receive Fitwel Recognition

Feature Story

Gables Vista Colorado

​​​​​​​​​​​The Center for Active Design's (CAD) Fitwel program, created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the General Services Administration, is a global health certification system that provides guidance on how to design and operate healthier buildings. Healthy building is the next generation of “green building" and not only includes environmentally responsible and resource-efficient building concepts, but also integrates health, wellness, and human experience in buildings.​

Clarion became a Fitwel Champion in 2020 for our efforts to improve the health features of our assets by Fitwel-certifying a large number of properties. To date, Clarion and Gables have certified 18 residential properties with an additional 10 expected for 2021.
