Retiro 144 is located in the Miraflores district of Lima. Residents of the building’s two penthouses and 13 apartments will have easy access to public transportation, nearby parks, shops and restaurants.
Energy-saving lighting and lighting controls will reduce the building’s energy use, while low-flow showerheads and faucets will reduce the building’s water use. The energy and water savings will allow residents to save on utilities and live more environmentally-friendly lifestyles.
The developer of the project, Inversiones La Pedrera, offers quality housing to its customers in the best districts in Lima. Retiro 144 is La Pedrera’s first resource-efficient building.
Retiro 144 has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.

Dual flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
Concrete filler slab for the roof and floor slabs, in-situ reinforced internal and external walls, exposed cored bricks with internal plaster for external walls, honeycomb clay blocks with plaster on both sides for internal walls, and ceramic tile and parquet wood 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.
