Boreal Colsubsidio is a six-tower apartment complex, bringing 1,008 units to the housing market in Bogotá. Each of the units will have three bedrooms and range from 74 to 102 square meters. Designed for families, the apartment complex will feature numerous areas for all to enjoy, including a fitness center, playground, pool, pet area, game room and more.
The apartment complex was designed to reduce its environmental impact through the conservation of natural resources. Energy-saving lighting, roof insulation and a high-efficiency boiler will reduce the building’s energy use, while dual-flush water closets and low-flow plumbing fixtures will reduce the building’s water use.
Amarilo, the developer of the project, has led the development of urban housing projects in Colombia for more than 27 years. The company is committed to building spaces that offer a strong sense of community and an environmentally-responsible lifestyle for residents.
Boreal Colsubsidio has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
External shading devices, insulation of the roof, a high-efficiency boiler for hot water, and energy-saving lighting in internal and external spaces.
Dual-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
In-situ reinforced concrete for the floor and roof, steel-clad sandwich panel for the roof, in-situ reinforced internal and external walls, and exposed cored bricks with internal 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.
