Green Features

An estimated 43 percent of carbon emissions in the United States come from building operations. This does not even include the emissions from creating or transporting the materials. With this fact in mind, the management team has ensured that this building would include a number of green features. From bamboo floors to compact development, the management staff members have ensured a green living experience.

At the property, residents will find native vegetation. By using native plants, the management team can reduce the pesticides and water used to maintain the landscaping. The beautiful landscape is ideally suited for the climate and helps limit pollution, sediment, erosion and dust.

On the interior of the building, residents will find low or no VOC paints and sealants. The builders deliberately avoided any interior primers, paints or sealants that might have volatile organic compounds. In addition to posing a risk to the environment, VOC paints can also impact the health of the residents. Because of their attentive focus on design, the management staff has managed to create a building that is healthy for people and the environment.

The entire building was created using an adaptive reuse model of building. The original building was the equivalent of 7 million gallons of gasoline in energy. By reusing the building instead of just building a new one, the complex has reduced waste. If the building has been demolished, it would have made an additional 4,442 tons of debris. To put this into perspective, it would take a single individual 5,292 years to make that much waste. The team has focused on compact development so that land and energy are carefully conserved.

On the interior of the units, tenants will find water conserving appliances and fixtures. The toilets use about 20 percent of indoor water use. Meanwhile, faucets and showers account for 25 percent. By choosing faucets, appliances and toilets that use less water, the building is able to conserve 4,929,000 gallons of water every year.

Meanwhile, efficient lighting means that residents use 66 percent less energy than normal. Plus, these fixtures last 10 times longer than the conventional options. To make the units even more energy efficient, the management team is currently considering solar options. The roof was designed to potentially include solar, so now the management team just has to figure out the best way to bring solar electricity to the building's residents.

To ensure fresh air, the entire building was redesigned with efficient ventilation systems. Meanwhile, the units utilize healthy flooring materials. By using materials like bamboo and poured concrete, the developers were able to reduce allergens and health risks for individuals.
