Developing ownership between our partners and residents in a co-living lifestyle that naturally brings people together.
A majority of Americans are working from home now. Covid-19 has blurred the lines between personal and professional life. Green Seed Apartments realizes the need for the separation of work and life. We have added a modern workspace environment within the building itself. That way your apartment does not become your office.
This modern workspace will have free access to high-speed internet as well as access to an all-in-one printer, high quality monitors, and other office items. In the workspace there will be office nooks and individual spaces and high quality video conferencing that make your office feel like your own.
A happy living environment is one that encourages meaningful community engagement. Everything about Green Seed Apartments is built to promote community. Our hallways are designed to be far wider than typical apartment buildings to create a common space where people feel comfortable talking and interacting. We have incorporated an intimate common area on each floor, a lobby on the first floor, and a community room in the basement for residents to hang out. Green Seed Apartments is committed to a sustainable future where community thrives.
Green Seed Apartments uses passive and active solar technology to further the energy efficiency of the buildings. Our triple-paned windows are a feature of passive solar technology because they prohibit temperature escape from the unit and ensure the unit required less artificial heating. Active solar technology fills the gaps that passive solar technology can’t. It powers the building electricity, heats the units, while being carbon free and renewable.
The Earth is an extremely effective source of heat and cooling. Geothermal heat pumps use the earth as a heat source pumping that heat up to the apartment or cool it by using the earth as a heat sink. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has called ground source heat pumps the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective space conditioning systems available.
On-site storage of rain collected from our roof allows Green Seed Apartments to preserve and save water for other uses like irrigation for our community gardens.
Green Seed Apartment’s is centrally located to many modes of transportation and we encourage our residents to go green by going car-free. However, we also understand that our residents occasionally have situations where they need a car, so we offer an Electric Vehicle on site for our residents to rent.
Green Seed Apartment’s has energy monitors reading the outputs of a variety of services within the building. Although utilities are included, we want to encourage our residents to use less energy through green behavior. Therefore, we provide our residents with data of how much power, water, and heat they are using so they can understand how to conserve further.
Green Seed Apartments offers front door access to the MAX Blue line. Allowing our residents to ditch the car commute and use greener transportation. Our residents are also given Tri-Met passes when they live here so they can start using their access to this opportunity immediately.
