Kelly, with pride, uses another baseball metaphor – “That makes us 4-0 in cases before the Su- preme Court”. We are dogged and undaunted in protecting and defending our rights! LNWA constructed Emblem at Christiana, a 245-luxury apartment community lo- cated on old Route 7/Stanton Road, directly across from the Christiana Mall. According to Sean Kelly , vice president of development, the complex was

designed to address the needs and preferences of today’s discerning renters, Emblem features large one to three bed- room apartments. Some of the exceptional amenities include walk-in closets, 9’ ceilings, oversized windows, stain- less steel appliances, granite countertops, sleek cabinetry, in-unit washer/dryer, carpet and solid surface flooring, and premium finishes. A focal point of the community is the large contemporary clubhouse with a state of the art exercise facility, resident lounge, gam- ing area and great room, along

with an adjacent resort-style pool and grilling area. Addi- tionally, covered and garage parking is offered on a limited basis. Emblem at Christiana is also a pet friendly community offering a dog park and bath- ing facility for our resident’s four legged companions. With a commitment to sus- tainability and energy effi- ciency, LNWA demanded that every aspect of the project’s design, construction and op- eration meet the National Green Building Standards (NGBS) . “NGBS has proven to be the most rigorous and

scientifically validated energy and sustainability standard in residential construction”, according to Debra Finoc- chiaro, vice president and director of construction. All phases of construction were reviewed by a certified third- party inspector to ensure com- pliance with NGBS. “Using the National Green Building Standard reflects our com- mitment to the environment, the community and our future residents. We offer the finest apartment homes in the state” said Glenn Brooks , president of LNWA. 
