You Perdizes is a 24-story residential building, located in the west neighborhood of Perdizes, in São Paulo. The building includes 62 studio and 80 two-bedroom apartments. The project has many amenities for residents to enjoy, including a co-working area, swimming pool, fitness center, bike storage, party room, gourmet area, and barbecue area.
The building was designed to conserve natural resources through the use of a reduced window-to-wall ratio, external shading devices, high-efficiency boiler for hot water generation, energy-saving lighting, solar hot water collectors, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and more.
You Perdizes was developed by Paladin Realty Partners and You Inc., with EDGE Expert Daniela Corcuera. A leader in sustainable development, Paladin Realty has invested in projects across Latin America, bringing more affordable housing to the market in a socially and environmentally-responsible way. The group has financed EDGE-certified projects throughout the region, including Bosque da Serra (Brazil), Villas del Fresno (Mexico), Verah (Peru), and You Collection Alves Guimarães (Brazil), among others.
You Perdizes has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.

Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window-to-wall ratio, external shading devices, roof insulation, high-efficiency boiler, energy-saving light bulbs in internal and external spaces, and solar hot water collectors.
Low-flow faucets and showerheads and dual flush for water closets.
In-situ waffle concrete slabs for floor and roof construction, medium weight hollow concrete blocks for internal and external walls, and plasterboards on metal studs for internal walls.
*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.
