Inmobiliaria Vinte’s Real Granada brings 56, two-bedroom green apartments to the housing market in Tecámac, Mexico. Each of the apartments in the 5,149m2 development features energy-saving lighting, a heat pump for hot water generation, low-flow showerheads and more.

Real Granada is a milestone for us and for the Mexican housing market in our transition towards more environmentally efficient housing,“ said Tobias Contreras, Director of Sustainability at Vinte. Real Granada has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
