La Cristalina – Ciudad Tres Quebradas

La Cristalina – Ciudad Tres Quebradas

La Cristalina is a new 492-unit apartment complex in the Ciudad Tres Quebradas residential development. Located just south of the city of Bogotá, La Cristalina is ideally located. The apartment complex was designed so that families of the six towers can enjoy a variety of common areas, including a gym, social room, children’s play area, and communal terrace.

The towers were also designed to conserve natural resources, allowing residents to save on utility bills and live more environmentally friendly lifestyles. LED lighting, natural ventilation, lighting controls, and low-flow plumbing fixtures will be used to reduce the towers’ energy and water use.

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 Living176 ParkArboleda del Campestre-LaurelNordikaPrado ParkPark Living,  Senderos de Reserva de Curinca, and Lunaria.

La Cristalina has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
