June 17, 2010
PORTLAND – Governor John E. Baldacci today joined officials from Tufts Medical Center, Developers Collaborative, the City of Portland, Portland builders and Gorham Savings Bank for the ribbon cutting of Crescent Heights, the latest apartment building in Portland. The building, primarily intended for use by medical students, is LEED-certified and planned with smart growth in mind.
“This new facility will serve this city and State well by helping to attract and keep medical professionals here in Maine, and gives special attention to urban issues, smart growth and energy efficiency,” said Governor Baldacci. “This forward-thinking initiative shows that even in these tough economic times, good things are happening in Portland and in Maine.”
“I want to commend the Developers Collaborative and all the designers, construction workers and others who played a role in its development,” said the Governor.
