Green Building Features

The following is a list of green strategies and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) principles that will be incorporated into the construction of the Corvette Tower:

Increasing the density of the development on the site and surrounding area; easy access to existing bus routes; bicycle storage, participation in the Victoria Car Share Program; minimizing garage sizes; managing the storm water runoff; reducing the island heat effect by using permeable pavers for 30% of the non-roof impervious surfaces & 100 % for the underground parking and providing site shade through tree planting; eliminating light trespass from the building and site, improving night sky access, minimizing site lighting; limiting use of potable water for irrigation, using native plant species, using high efficiency irrigation systems, using storm water (and brown water if feasible) for irrigation; specifying high efficiency plumbing fixtures to reduce wastewater and to reduce water consumption; designating an area for recycling of household waste; using materials with recycled content; where possible using materials manufactured within radius 500 miles; using material that is rapidly replaced (such as wool, bamboo, wheatgrass board, linoleum); use certified wood; provide CO2 monitoring (in underground garage); providing fresh air ventilation source in every unit; using low emission adhesives and sealants; carpets; paints and coatings; composite wood; designing the Building with occupant control for airflow, temperature and lighting for perimeter and non perimeter rooms; designing the building envelope and HVAC system to maintain temperature and humidity comfort ranges; designing the building to maximize interior daylight access to 90% of the rooms. - Mike Levin, Praxis Architects Inc.

Parking Level Plans

  • This residential high-rise will require reading to the City of Esquimalt for re-zoning.
    We at Monimos Equities & Development estimate that it will take approximately one
    year for the re-zoning application to complete.

This building will be the only residential high-rise in the Greater Victoria area ready
to sell in the next two years, there-by giving it a substantial market advantage.
