  • Permeable surfaces to improve stormwater management and reduce runoff
  • Proximity to public transit, green space, community health services, retail and employment
  • Use of recyclable and recycled materials: Diverted 90% of construction waste
  • Improved indoor air quality/natural ventilation in the units and the common areas: Thermal comfort achieved through natural ventilation, ceiling fans, and sun breaking devices
