Vanishing Footprint

you
are
here

If you live in a typical ABQ apartment, this is your monthly electric bill
and the amount of carbon your home dumps into the atmosphere.

your

Your footprint
is one-third smaller

Shared
spaces

The Lobby, the yoga studio, the lounge
and all the hallways are
carbon net-zero, powered by our rooftop solar cells.

Moving into Platinum is like planting a 2 1/2 acres
of carbon-scrubbing forest every year.

It's saving the same amount of carbon as if you drove...

from ABQ to L.A.

then driving to NYC

turning around to L.A.
