Net zero energy apartments recharge downtown LA living
Hanover Company opened the doors to its newest LA property, Hanover Olympic, April 8th. This property is unique to the company as it will lease out 20 apartment homes with Eco-Green finishes.
Olympic's Eco-Green community is the first of its kind for Hanover who has properties across the country already featuring the environmentally conscious LEED certification. This certification is a symbol that a property has made the conscious decision to make a property more sustainable with energy saving features benefiting water, energy conservation, and more.
While the new Olympic property is LEED registered, the most notable environmentally friendly features are the 20 apartments powered by rooftop solar panels. These living spaces are equipped with Nest thermostats, occupancy sensors, an iPad to monitor energy consumption, and energy efficient finishes. The new eco features are designed for residents wanting to live a more green life without sacrificing the luxuries and comfort that come with living in downtown LA.
The state of California has consistently led the way towards environmentally friendly commercial and residential buildings. Efficiency standards for new buildings took effect on new construction January 1, 2014 and continues to keep California as the nation's leader in energy efficient structures. These standards looks to increase energy savings by 25% for homes and 30% for commercial buildings.
Hanover Olympic is located in Downtown L.A. at 936 South Olive Street, just minutes from the Staples Center and the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising.
