Evo art

If you live in LA, you’ve probably heard about Evo and the rest of the newly planted green buildings in the South Park neighborhood (official referred to as "South").  Evo is expected to receive LEED Silver certification, joining its neighbors Luma and Elleven — California’s first LEED Gold condos.  At some point, we’ll take the opportunity to talk about both Elleven and Luma as well, but since Newsday published these pictures of the model unit in Evo, we thought it’d be fun to take a look inside. 

Luma Elleven

You’ll see interior photos below, but this image above shows Luma (left) and Elleven (right).  If you stop to think about it, there’s probably no other place in the world with three, LEED-certified residential towers as neighbors like this.  Right?  Maybe in Portland or UAE, but I’ll have to go brainstorm on that …

South itself is the embodiment of over five years of work, and although LEED is gaining in popularity, the neighborhood is still very forward-thinking.  It’s modern, stylish, and green.  If you’re interested, the 24-story building has units ranging in size from 730 – 3500 sf and price from mid-$400k – $3m.  Go buy one, if there are any left.
