Located in the San Borja district of Lima, the Vía Boyle apartments offer families the chance to live a modern and sustainable lifestyle. The multi-family apartment complex has five floors with 12 three-bedroom apartments and one four-bedroom apartment. Each of the units, which are designed not to need air conditioning, have an interior patio called the Zen Terrace, which opens to a courtyard with natural light and a garden providing residents with a peaceful space to enjoy their home. Developers AE + BE S.A.C, members of the Origin Group, carefully selected materials that would consume less embodied energy, including autoclaved aerated concrete blocks for walls.
The City of Lima awarded Vía Boyle with a “Bonificación de Altura,” or height bonus” incentive, for its sustainability features. Buildings that are constructed under green industry standards are allowed to be built higher than the regulated height in Lima, prompting smart developers such as AE + BE S.A.C to seek green building certifications. As a member of the Origen Group, residents who purchase a home with AE + BE S.A.C also receive many benefits such as a year of free maintenance, legal advice and other services. Origen Group has over 18 years of experience in the Lima real estate sector.
Via Boyle has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
