LOOKING FOR A GREEN CONDO?

 

For the eco-conscious condo buyer, choosing a building can be challenging. Many of the restored and renovated old factories and buildings are becoming transformed into lofts and condos. It¢s a great asset to the neighbourhood when a contaminated old factory is transformed into retail or residential lofts. More and more condo owners want to have green elements in their buildings and suites. Here are some things to keep in mind when looking for a Green Condo Building. Idividually controlled heat and air conditioning (keep your heat and air low and save $ and energy Energy Star Appliances (great investment if your condo doesn¢t already have them) Close to public transit (leave the car home and hop on!) AutoShare close-by (sell the car and only pay when you need it) Bike storage (get physical and enjoy seeing your city) Low flush toilets and water saving shower heads Geothermal Building (High Park Lofts are Toronto¢s 1st) Solar Panels Green interior finishes such as low-VOC latex paints, formaldehyde-free cabinets (keep your air free of pollutants) Green Roof LEED certified For those buildings that do not yet have green elements, you can begin to make interior changes inside your suite adding eco-friendly improvements such as; energy-efficient lighting, bamboo, cork or marmoleum flooring, appliances, paint, toilet and shower-head, and eco-friendly furniture.
