Recently The Crossing Apartments, a luxury, transit-oriented development seeking LEED Silver certification, opened in Anaheim, California. The project, designed by KTGY Group, Inc., includes 39 live/work units and 312 lofts and one- and two-bedroom units in a contemporary and eco-friendly setting.
Green aspects include a cool roof, storm water recapture, energy-efficient windows, water-saving fixtures, high-efficiency dual flush toilets, CFLs, Energy Star appliances, low-VOC paints, low-VOC carpeting made from 100% post-recycled content, a ventilation system, and a community recycling program.
Located at 3530 E. La Palma Avenue, The Crossing is a smoke-free residential community with parking for more than 120 bicycles and preferred parking for fuel-efficient vehicles.
During construction, developer SARES•REGIS diverted roughly 94% of demolition waste from the landfill and achieved a recycling rate of 74% during construction.
The Crossing has pretty much everything one could ask for with a health club fitness center, free wifi in the common areas, outdoor gathering areas, and a dazzling pool and spa area. Units range in size from 639 to 1,421 square feet and in rent from $1,320 to $2,165 per month.
Update: per the comments, this project achieved LEED Gold certification.
