Our Strategy

Each element of Vert has been thoughtfully selected for sustainability, health, and inclusion.

You’re living in a Green Cities building.

Here are some of the ways Vert is prioritizing sustainability, health, and community:

Resource Efficiency

  • Replaced unit light bulbs with LED bulbs, which use 75% less energy than incandescent, and last up to 25 times longer.
  • Sourced ENERGY STAR©-rated appliances for all renovated units, which use 15% less energy than other models.
  • Added low-flow aerators in plumbing fixtures to saves up to 50% of water.
  • Installed EV stations for convenient charging.
  • Replaced traditional landscaping with xeriscaping, leveraging the use of rocks and drought-tolerant plants to dramatically reduce the need for irrigation.

Health and Wellbeing

  • Installed a water bottle filling station and drinking fountain in the amenity space to reduce disposable water bottle use and increase access to fresh water for all.
  • Provided modern fitness center.
  • Planted seasonal herb gardens for resident use.
  • Provided resident bike parking.

Design

  • Implemented Biophilic Design for a connection to nature and mental, physical, and emotional health.

Detoxification

  • Used GREENGUARD certified low VOC paints to reduce harmful gasses emitted by traditional paints.
  • Installed walk-off floor mats at all entries to reduce indoor air pollutants and dirt.
  • Prohibited smoking inside the building and within ten feet.
  • Provided green cleaning supplies to all staff and tenants, reducing harsh chemicals.
  • Installed MERV-13 filters, the highest rated residential filter available, effectively reducing pet dander, viruses, and allergens from indoor air.

Vert is a Fitwel and LEED Certified building.
