Eco Living: Green Condo Week at GearCrave.com
Santa Monica, CA 5/22/2008 05:46 AM GMT (WooEB)
This week at GearCrave.com, a mens buying guide and lifestyle magazine, green building and appliance technology are taking the front seat. As you may have noticed, eco-conscious "green" condo complexes are popping up in major cities across the US. From Urban Green Condos in Brooklyn, NY to Eco 18 in Chicago, green building technologies are at the forefront of new urban living developments.
During Green Condos Week, GearCrave will be discussing the new technologies and systems built into green condos, plus looking at some of the top green condo complexes currently looking for buyers. Many of these complexes include green roofs, solar paneling, natural water and air cooling and all meet current LEED standards. Buyers can be confident that they will not only help to serve a cleaner, greener environment, they'll also be saving on electricity and other utility bills.
Beyond the green benefits of these new homes, some of the nation's best architects are developing these complexes. Each offers a stylish, modern feel with up-to-date amenities, albiet up to power saving standards. Looking at these green condo complexes, they share the same level of cutting edge interior and exterior design as those which don't focus on green technology. While the asking price may be a bit higher than your standard three-flat condo, the extra cost is likely to pay for itself in energy savings.
