I think that LEED-NC v2.2 (with ASHRAE 90.1-2004) would be the best
option, though obviously you are right on that border line between where
90.1 is appropriate. This is mostly based on my brief run through of the
LEED for Homes criteria, which I feel is better suited for single family
and town-home type settings (others may disagree with me on this). 

The other advantage of using this compliance path is that you can take
advantage of the "LEED-NC Application Guide for Multiple Buildings and
On-Campus Building Projects" which can save you A LOT of duplicate
effort in documenting a project with multiple, similar buildings (for
almost all credits, not just EAc1). Check out the application guide
using the search function on the USGBC website if the following link
does not work:

Hi Colleagues, 

I have here a group of 7 buildings in the same project. They are all
identical, except for orientation. 

The buildings are multifamily residential units, with 3 floors and a
basement each. They are existing buildings being renovated, and I am
wondering which version of LEED should apply (LEED for New Construction
and Major Renovations, LEED for Homes, ...)? 

Also, should I use ASHRAE 90.1 or ASHRAE 90.2 for the Baseline?
