Green Chicago Rental Nabs Prestigious Award

A new Chicago real estate tower has been named “High-Rise of the Year” by Multifamily Executive Magazine.

EnV, one of the first LEED-certified apartment buildings in Chicago, is a 249-unit luxury rental property that was designed by Valerio Dewalt Train Associates.

The building was honored with the 2011 MFE Award for its green design.

The 29-story, mixed-use tower was completed last year with environmentally friendly features, including:

*A green roof made of sedum, which lowers energy costs.

*Energy Star appliances in all units

*Outdoor landscaping that requires no irrigation

*Onsite service to Zipcar and bike storage

There is also a multitude of amenities at this modern property, which is located across the street from Chicago’s historic Merchandise Mart. Want to see more? Check out our story:
