Sustainability

Connection to the natural world flourishes in every moment, every aspect, of The Sur. From sustainable, eco-friendly apartment features, to community-wide green initiatives and efforts, to working rooftop hives filled with honeybees, we go beyond LEED Gold standards to support and replenish the wonder of the earth around us.

GREEN MATERIALS

Luxe flourishes that protect lush environments.

  • Our custom-built front desk made from reclaimed White Oak wood welcomes you into The Sur.
  • Each apartment home was crafted with recycled, reclaimed, sustainable interior furnishings, like Energy Star appliances.
  • More than 75% of construction waste was recycled instead of going to a landfill.
  • Low VOC sealants, paints and flooring were used to reduce air toxins and enhance air quality.
  • Living plant walls create a green oasis lining your path to our courtyards and throughout The Grove while the green roof cascades over the 8th floor pergola.


LIMITED FOOTPRINT

A vibrant community without the impact.

  • Built in a dense urban area that is well connected to public transportation - located near metro, plus offers carpool, and rideshare options, communities, and trails. This reduces the amount of energy per person in the building by reducing emissions from transportation and allows for walkability and closer access to services.
  • The Sur is located with easy accessibility to surrounding bike trails and provides bike storage and bike share options. 
  • 30% of building materials are locally sourced -within 500 miles.
  • There are 6 electrical car charging stations, preferred parking for low-emitting vehicles, as well as underground parking which reduces heat emitted from the typical asphalt surface parking lots.
  • Recycling shoot available on each floor to promote the resident recycling program.
  • The Sur is a proud participant in the National Green Power Program.


SAVE THE REDWOODS

Because we were so inspired by their grandeur, The Sur will be donating a portion of our proceeds to saving the redwoods in Big Sur, California. If you’d like to help, click here—and join us in sharing the experience of those natural wonders with generations to come.
