The go green trend has been on the rise, from health to clothing, making it’s way into the construction of apartment buildings. Now, more than ever before, management companies and developers are looking to build green apartments for residents to enjoy all the benefits that come with an eco-friendly living environment. As residents are growing more and more concerned about their carbon-footprint, the demand for eco-friendly apartments has risen drastically, and for good reason.
Eco-friendly apartment developers are making the most of their resources. They are using a ton of reusable and recycled material in the construction process. They are incorporating these materials into all aspects of the design process as well. By sourcing materials locally, these developers are growing the local economy. By reducing waste and energy generated in a typical construction, residents who are concerned about their own personal carbon footprint can rest assured that they are investing into a living community that coincides with their values. Not to mention that many green building materials are pleasing to the eye such as, natural stone and hardwood. These durable materials would make any apartment dweller want to go green.
Improved Air Quality
Green apartments are typically built using non-toxic construction materials and are equipped with extremely effective ventilation systems, concentrating on better air quality and filtration. Ideally, the air in your apartment should be less susceptible to mold growth or dust piling up.
Requiring less energy and water usage, green apartments provide residents with lower energy bills. By using energy efficient household products, eco-friendly lighting and plumbing fixtures, and installing energy efficient windows, green apartments reduce energy consumption leaving your wallet very happy.
Location, Location, Location
Eco-friendly developers typically set up these apartments near frequently visited and well-connected public transportation stations. By giving green apartments prime real estate in terms of location, residents benefit from walkable access to businesses and shops, while reducing cost of driving. In many newly constructed green apartments, bike storage space is becoming commonplace.
