This luxury apartment complex near Georgetown and Dupont Circle encompasses eco-minded and transit-oriented options, including multiple recycling areas, abundant bike racks, and preferred parking for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles.

Strategically located within a few blocks of public transportation in the city’s upscale West End neighborhood, the building was repurposed from two vacant office structures into a 10-story sustainable showpiece. By recycling the skeletal superstructures of the building, 19,000 tons of waste were diverted from the landfill.

With residents’ health in mind, the developer included a constant air filtration system; low-VOC paints, carpets, and sealants; and nontoxic cleaning products for common areas. Light-filled one- and two-bedroom and penthouse floor plans offer gourmet kitchens featuring energy-efficient GE Profile appliances and granite countertops. The open floor plans incorporate floor-to-ceiling windows, and many residences feature balconies or terraces.

Tenants also enjoy a 24-hour concierge, a lounge, and a Japanese garden. The rooftop pool area includes a terrace, grills, a bar, and spectacular views overlooking Rock Creek Park. The fitness center incorporates world-class strength and cardio training equipment with LCD screens and iPod docking stations.

Other sustainable features include:
Water-source heat pumps
Energy recovery ventilators
55% decreased exterior water use through drought-tolerant landscaping and drip irrigation systems
Green roof provides additional insulation and reduces storm water runoff
Low-E windows
Abundant daylight throughout the building reduces reliance on electricity
