Low-flow plumbing fixtures were selected for installation to reduce potable water consumption by 43% compared to a building with conventional plumbing fixtures. This amounts to over 20 million litres of water saved annually!
Construction Waste Diversion (84.8% Diverted)

ERVs, Fan coils and Improved Air Quality
Each suite is equipped with an energy recovery ventilator (ERV). The ERV allows the delivery of fresh outdoor air directly into the suite through the vertical fan coil unit, while recovering 60-70% of the energy of outgoing air. Waste energy from stale air is used to warm up incoming air in winter and cool down incoming air in summer while recovering energy from the departing airstream and ensuring better indoor air quality for residents.
Corridor, storage rooms, garage lights and amenity spaces are controlled by occupancy sensors that turn lights off when areas are unoccupied. Suites are equipped with energy-efficient compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs to maximize energy performance.
ENERGY STAR® Appliances
ENERGY STAR® appliances are standard in every suite and include a stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher and front-loading washing machine. ENERGY STAR® qualified products consume 30% less energy than their conventional counterparts, which helps residents save money on electricity.
Residents have full control over their thermal comfort. Each suite is equipped with a programmable digital thermostat, which residents can use to control temperature and airflow in the suite. The thermostat allows homeowners to set the temperature to their comfort level when at home and adjust for increased energy savings when they are away.
Sub-metering of Utilities
Each suite is submetered to measure thermal energy, electricity, and hot water consumption, which means residents are only billed for the energy they use.
