Evo green living
It may seem like the worst time for a new condominium building to hit the market, but developers behind the new 24-story Evo tower at 1155 S. Grand Ave. in downtown Los Angeles this month are moving forward with a strategy that includes playing to the eco-consciousness of prospective buyers.
The building, representatives say, is on track to receive a silver LEED rating from the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program. The eco-friendly features will be the subject of a talk and tour Oct. 11, but the Home section got a sneak peek before Evo's premiere. The model unit shown here was set up to showcase how the building's sustainable construction can be complemented with a green interior.
