Algarrobo is a 660-unit apartment complex nestled within the Arboleda del Campestre residential development in southern Ibagué. The complex’s two-bedroom units range in size from 42 to 45 square meters. Residents will enjoy the community’s numerous amenities designed for the whole family, including swimming pools for adults and children, a playground, and multi-use spaces.
The apartment complex was designed to reduce energy and water usage, allowing residents to save on utility bills and live more environmentally friendly lifestyles. Energy-saving lighting, a reduced window-to-wall ratio, and low-flow plumbing fixtures will be incorporated to contribute to the energy and water savings.
The developer of the project, Constructora Bolívar, has led the Colombian market in the development of urban housing projects for all income levels for more than 30 years. The company is committed to sustainable construction that generates value for its clients. Constructora Bolívar has also certified 127 Living, 176 Park, Arboleda del Campestre-Laurel, Nordika, Prado Park, Park Living, and Senderos de Reserva de Curinca.
Algarrobo has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
