Green Ideas recently began working on Lotus Point Apartments, an exciting new multi-family project targeting LEED Silver certification in Mesa, AZ. The project, owned by StarPoint Development of Beverly Hills, California, is a 245-unit transit-oriented development scheduled for completion in 2025.
Designed by Circle West Architects, this best-in-class, four-story property will feature a mix of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. It will offer modern amenities including a swimming pool, fitness center, clubhouse, co-working facility and a demonstration kitchen. Parking will include 369 tuck-under and on-grade parking spots. Construction will be performed by Waltz Construction of Tempe, AZ.
The project’s convenient location is key to earning several of the LEED for New Construction program’s credits in the Location & Transportation category. It is strategically located near Phoenix’s main transportation arteries, just one mile from SR-101, one and one-half miles from SR-202, and two miles from US-60. Residents of Lotus Point will have easy access to many of the region’s work and cultural centers. The Sycamore Station light rail stop is within a short walk, providing residents with car-free access to downtown Mesa, Arizona State University, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, and downtown Phoenix. The project is also adjacent to a Safeway neighborhood center with multiple retail amenities. Lotus Point will have a walk score of 78 and a bike score of 94, adding to the total LEED certification score.
