St. Petersburg is a GREEN City

St. Petersburg is a city that is quietly becoming known across the globe as a city of innovation and high standards. It is the first American city to be designated a GREEN city. The designation is earned through Florida Green Building Coalition using LEED criteria and partnerships with Florida Green Building Coalition, Green Building Council and the Environmental Protection Agency.

 

Living here, you get the sense that there is a deep level of care in the quality of life for this generation and future generations living in what locals affectionately refer to as, “The ‘Burg.”

 

Here are a few of the sustainability initiatives:

  • Water Conservation
  • LEED standards for new construction
  • Fuel-efficient cars in city fleet
  • Conversion of traffic signal lights to LED saving energy lighting
  • Waste to energy plant
  • Increasing use of solar power
  • Green space preservation with 2,292 acres of park land
  • Building largest bike/ped path in Southeast US
  • Named Florida’s best walking city by Prevention magazine
  • Street sweeping and street scaping with trees and flowering plants

And the list goes on and on. But what truly makes this city green are the people that live here. THEY LOVE TO BE OUTSIDE!!! And the City of St. Pete makes sure that when they do it will be easy for them to get around and lovely for all to experience.

Green-Certified, Local AND Proud.

When you move into The Salvador, you will be living in a beautiful brand new residential structure that refines artful living, and you’ll know that your building was developed with a focus on community-enhancing beliefs and green friendly building practices.

 

The Salvador is being constructed on a lot that previously contained three dilapidated buildings that were unsightly and run down.  DDA Development is developing The Salvador to be a condo tower that gives people a beautiful place to live in downtown and is beneficial to the downtown community that they love.

 

For this reason, The Salvador was built with earth friendly philosophies and is the first condo tower in Downtown St. Pete to be a Green-Certified building. This distinction sets The Salvador apart from other condo towers. Here are some of the sustainability features that you will enjoy:

  • Energy Star windows
  • Energy Star glass doors
  • High-efficiency air-conditioners and water heaters
  • Solar heated pool
  • Energy Star roofing
  • Native Florida landscaping with low-flow irrigation system
  • Resident recycling program

 

Being green is just a part of the building’s sustainability practices. Supporting the local is the other core philosophy. The condo tower is being built with a focus on hiring local St. Petersburg companies in as many aspects as possible. Local hiring includes:

  • Contractor
  • Artist
  • Interior Design
  • Architecture Firm

 

Live in beauty, AND feel proud. It’s all here… www.thesalvador.com
