176 Park is a four-tower, low-income housing project in Bogotá. The one-bedroom units are adaptable to suit the needs of all residents, including artists, musicians, and cyclists. Located in close proximity to public transport and important roads such as the north highway, 170th street and 183rd street, the project provides residents easy access to key points of commerce in northern Bogotá.
The apartment complex was designed to reduce energy and water consumption, helping residents to save on utility costs. Energy-saving lighting and controls will contribute to the building’s energy savings, while low-flow plumbing fixtures will contribute to the building’s water savings.
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, Arboleda del Campestre-Laurel, Nordika, Park Living, and Prado Park.
176 Park has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
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, micro concrete tiles on steel rafters for the roof, cored bricks with no finish and in-situ reinforced internal walls, and exposed cored bricks with internal and external plaster for 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.
