Located in the Carolina district of Quito, Trier is a 10-story building with a retail shop, office and 23 apartments. Residents will enjoy the building’s impressive location, offering panoramic views of the city and easy access to Quito’s restaurants, shopping centers and nightlife. Residents will also enjoy numerous amenities including a gym, BBQ area, and green roof with endemic plants.
The building was designed to reduce its environmental impact through the conservation of natural resources. A heat pump for hot water generation, reflective paint and energy-saving lighting contribute to the building’s energy savings, while dual-flush water closets and low-flow faucets contribute to the building’s water savings.
Trier was designed by architects Michelle Vizcaíno and Carlos Valverde, and developed by Inmoplus. For over 20 years, Inmoplus has provided its customers with safe, modern homes in great locations around Ecuador.
Trier has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
