Catania Residencial brings 203 three-bedroom private residences to the housing market in Cancún. The controlled-access community offers numerous amenities to its residents, including a sports center, paddle court and palapa for events. Green space throughout the community allows residents to connect with nature.
Homeowners benefit from lower utility bills as all units reduce energy and water usage through energy-saving indoor lighting, roof insulation, dual-flush water closets and other low-flow plumbing fixtures.
The developer of the project, Inmobiliaria Vinte, is dedicated to improving their tenants’ quality of life by building more efficient housing with positive economic and environmental impacts. An EDGE Champion, Vinte has committed to certifying its immediate future projects with EDGE. Vinte’s other properties, including Real Granada, Real Vizcaya, Real Segovia and Real Madeira, have all received final EDGE certification.
Catania Residencial has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
