The eight-floor Alarife apartment building is located in the heart of Loja, which is considered the music and cultural capital of Ecuador. Residents of the homes have easy access to nearby shopping centers, hospitals, hotels and office buildings. Each of the 16 two and three-bedroom apartments are also resource-efficient, providing a comfortable environment where residents can live a more environmentally-friendly lifestyle. With the building’s green features, residents can expect to save between 32 to 37 percent on their utility bills, depending on the type of unit.
Velsa Bauen Constructores, led by Pablo Vélez Salgado, is committed to the sustainable development of Loja. The company aims to create resource-efficient designs that improve the quality of life of its customers. Velsa Bauen Constructores believes that buildings should not only be comfortable and modern, but also green. Alarife has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
