Hello Demba,
Since this building is three stories or less, then it falls under the ASHRAE 90.2 guidelines as residential multifamily building.  
This building would fall under the LEED for Homes guidelines.  Having said that, then this building would fall under the auspices of the Home Energy Rating System which uses the 2004 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) as a baseline.
I hope this helps,

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
Major Renovations, LEED for Homes, ...)? 

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