The building features high efficiency glazing and insulation, high efficiency heat pumps and centralized water heating. A 40,000-gallon cistern collects rainwater and meets the entire irrigation demand for the building.
Etta resides in a neighborhood undergoing significant redevelopment. GEM partnered closely with the Lower Polk CBD Neighborhood Association to incorporate the existing stakeholders of the area into design and operational decisions. GEM also brokered a contract with Verizon to house a cell tower on top of the building as an additional revenue source. After lease-up was completed, GEM oversaw the disposition of the asset in 2014.
