Zivalam is a premium residential community in Cancún. Featuring the latest smart home technology, residents will be able to enjoy comfort at another level with the ability to control their homes’ systems from their phones. The community will also feature numerous amenities for residents to enjoy, including pools, soccer and volleyball courts, green areas and spaces to camp.

The residential community’s 160 homes and 120 condominiums will be built with resource-efficient technology. Solar photovoltaics, a high-efficiency boiler for hot water generation, and LED lighting will be installed to reduce the residences’ energy use, while dual-flush water closets and low-flow plumbing fixtures will be installed to reduce the residences’ water use.

Zivalam’s developer, Grupo IKON, is committed to building high-performance, resource-efficient housing. By developing homes that save energy and water, Grupo IKON will provide its customers with homes that help them save on utilities and live more environmentally-friendly lifestyles.

Zivalam has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
