Aquabella Pursues LEED® Platinum Status
We’re Going Green All The Way
Located on Toronto’s inner harbour alongside the water’s edge, Aquabella is the third phase of the Bayside Toronto community, a fully integrated, mixed-use waterfront neighbourhood where people will come to live, work, learn and play.
Aquabella is part of the community master-plan to transform this storied neighbourhood into a people-friendly enclave of exceptional homes, a variety of schools, trendy shops and cafes, and lush parkland. Bayside will be a showcase for a community that can be planned around the needs of people and the natural environment.
We are proud that Aquabella is pursuing Platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) status. Environmentally friendly initiatives that will make Aquabella one of the greenest buildings in the world include: Low flow plumbing fixtures to reduce potable water consumption by over 50%; storm water cisterns to capture rain for the building’s plants, which are all either drought tolerant or native plantings; suites featuring Energy Star appliances and ERVs (energy recovery ventilators) to help you save up to 60% on energy, while improving indoor air quality. And for residents with electric vehicles, we will have electric charging stations.
As well, a portion of our construction materials contain recycled content or have been locally sourced; all our paints and adhesives are low VOC; and we aim to recycle at least 75% of our construction waste.
