Drake's BlogApril 4, 2012
Drake is 17th Ave’s newest neighbor and has been expertly designed and priced to be seriously affordable. Featuring 135 new condos and townhomes tucked just behind Melrose Café and Bar, there's something for everyone with homes ranging from studios to penthouse suites to two-bedroom townhomes.
At Drake we are big fans of this spinning globe we call home, which is why Grosvenor is designing Drake to LEED™ standards and pursuing certification. Energy efficient appliances, low VOC paints and water-smart plumbing fixtures are just a few of the earth-friendly features included at Drake. Learn more below:
•The Elbow River is vitally important to us and that is why we are using low flow plumbing fixtures, and at least 50% less potable water for landscape irrigation.
•Worried about our recycling program? Don’t be. We are recycling over 50% of construction waste.
•By using low VOC paints and sealants, Drake will have fresh clean air flow.
•At Drake, we enjoy conserving energy by using efficient lighting systems.
•At Drake you don’t have to worry about using a car as we are walking distance to many popular shops and services. There will also be ample bike storage provided.
