Arterra is an urban living, high-rise community in Mission Bay that will have a mixture of flats and townhomes of various sizes. Arterra has three buildings: "Sky," a 16-level tower, "City," a 9-level building, and "Park," a 6-level building with 2-story homes. Go to the Arterra website and you can watch a video that shows you the views from each building. Because Arterra is a high-end lifestyle community, you will have benefits such as 24-hour concierge, state-of-the-art fitness center, community lounge, rooftop sun deck with lounge and barbecue, etc. But, another feature of Arterra is that it will be the first LEED-Certified Green high-rise community in San Francisco.
Arterra is going after LEED certification, so here are some of the current green amenities being planned: formaldehyde-free cabinets (Studio Becker); low-emitting paint and carpets; high-efficiency water heating boiler; Kohler dual-flush toilets and other water-saving features; low-E, energy-efficient, insulated windows; Energy Star home appliances and gas ranges; bamboo for all standard kitchen floors; cork flooring at all elevator levels; recycled glass floors and FSC-Certified wood walls in entry-level lobby; bicycle storage in the parking garage; and recycled content panels for the exterior facade. Arterra is being developed by Intracorp Companies.
