Update: Lotus Point Multifamily Project Targeting LEED Silver Certification

By admin 2 months ago

Construction is well underway at another Green Ideas multifamily apartment project in Mesa, Arizona.

Green Ideas’ President Charlie Popeck recently completed a jobsite visit to the Lotus Point Apartment project, a 245-unit transit-oriented residential development targeting LEED Building Design & Construction (BD+C) certification at the Silver level.

Green Ideas has contracted with StarPoint Development of Beverly Hills, California to drive the LEED certification process for this best-in-class four-story property that will feature a mix of studios and one and two-bedroom units, with modern amenities including a swimming pool, fitness center, clubhouse, co-working facility and demonstration kitchen. Parking will include 369 parking spots, split between tuck-under and on-grade parking stalls. Construction is being executed by Waltz Construction of Tempe, with scheduled completion in March 2025.

The location of the project will be key to earning several of the LEED credits in the Location & Transportation category, as it is located at a strategic location near Phoenix’s main transportation arteries. Located one mile from SR-101, one and one half of a mile from SR-202, and two miles from US-60, residents of Lotus Point will have easy access to many of the region’s job centers and amenities. 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.
