Southwest Properties is targeting LEED® Gold certification for CUNARD Residences. Guiding principles for the development include smart growth strategies, resident comfort, and green building practices to ensure the creation of a sustainable, beautiful, and livable building.
CUNARD Residences is constructed from quality materials and efficiency features include energy modelling, energy recovery ventilators, and individual unit utility metering. In addition to being better for the environment, this also means residents can control their own utility consumption.
Ideally located on the Halifax waterfront, the property is perfectly situated for both work and play. Living within walking distance of so many shops and services mean residents will find they spend less time in their cars. To encourage alternative modes of green transportation, EV charges are on-site and the interior parkade provides ample bicycle storage racks.
