Prado Park is a new, 643-unit apartment complex in Bogotá. The community will include three seven-story towers and a three-story communal building for residents to enjoy.
The one-bedroom units are adaptable to suit the needs of residents with different lifestyles, including artists, musicians and cyclists. The units were also designed to conserve natural resources, helping residents to save on utility costs.
The developer of the project, Constructora Bolívar, has led the Colombian market in the development of urban housing projects for all income levels for more than 30 years. The company is committed to sustainable construction that not only conserves natural resources, but also generates value for its clients. Constructora Bolívar has also certified 127 Living, 176 Park, Arboleda del Campestre-Laurel, Nordika, and Park Living.
Prado Park has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, energy-saving lighting in internal and external spaces, and lighting controls for corridors and staircases.
Water-efficient single-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
In-situ reinforced concrete slab for the floor and roof, cored bricks with no finish for internal walls, facing brick and solid concrete blocks for external walls, and in-situ reinforced internal and external walls.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
