With more than 25 years of experience in the Colombian market, Conaltura Construcción y Vivienda is committed to developing sustainable and innovative properties such as VerdeVivo Ariza. The residential complex, which is located in Itagüí, is 26 stories tall with three towers.
In addition to its resource-efficiency strategies, VerdeVivo Ariza conserves flora and fauna with more than 500 centenary trees on the property, with rainwater used for the maintenance of common areas. There is a dual system for household waste separation and privileged parking for bicycles to encourage the use of bike trails across the city.
VerdeVivo Ariza has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from thinkstep.
