Verde Two Monteverde Tower is a new, 124-unit apartment complex in Jakarta. Located in the embassy district, the complex is near city transportation, office complexes, shopping centers, and entertainment facilities.
The three-bedroom units were designed and built to reduce energy and water usage, allowing residents to save on utility bills and live more environmentally friendly lifestyles. Energy-saving lighting, wall insulation, and thermal glass reduce the building’s energy use, while low-flow plumbing fixtures reduce the building’s water use. Verde Two Monteverde Tower also features an advanced air filtration system that provides outstanding indoor air quality, protecting residents from harmful particulates and pollutants.
The project was developed by Farpoint with Asia Green Real Estate as an investor, who has worked with IFC since 2017 to help its clients identify the most cost-effective solutions to build green. Asia Green Real Estate has dedicated green building experts who analyze the resource efficiency of each project and help develop buildings that are environmentally, economically, and socially sound. The company has already invested in more than two million square meters of sustainable floor space and has achieved EDGE certification for a number of projects, including Ecoloft Jababeka Cikarang, Samara Suites, Verde Two Terraverde Tower, and Guizhou Tower.
Verde Two Monteverde Tower has received EDGE Advanced certification from GBCI Indonesia.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window-to-wall ratio, insulation of external walls, low-E coated glass, a variable refrigerant volume (VRV) cooling system, and energy-saving lighting in internal spaces.
Dual-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
In-situ reinforced concrete for the floor and roof, autoclaved aerated concrete blocks for internal walls, aluminum-clad sandwich panel for external walls, and parquet/wood block 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.
