Los Angeles is a new, 16-unit apartment complex in Miraflores. Residents will enjoy the flexibility of the building’s floorplans and its proximity to shopping centers, restaurants, schools, and parks.
The one, two, and four-bedroom apartments were designed to reduce their environmental impact through the conservation of natural resources. LED lighting, external shading devices, dual-flush water closets, and low-flow plumbing fixtures will be installed to reduce the apartments’ energy and water use.
The developer of the project, Inmobiliaria Danfra, is committed to meeting the needs of families in Peru. With an emphasis on improving its customers’ well-being, the resource efficiency of the Los Angeles apartment complex will allow residents to save on utilities.
Los Angeles has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.

Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window-to-wall ratio, reflective paint/tiles for the roof, external shading devices, and energy-saving lighting for external spaces.
Dual-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
Concrete filler slab for the floor and roof, autoclaved aerated concrete blocks for internal and externals walls, in-situ reinforced external walls, and ceramic tile flooring.
*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.
