ECO PHX is a purposefully sustainable, infill development of 70 apartment homes that demonstrates what is possible with today’s technology.  To accomplish this objective, we approached the design process from the inside out, with sustainability components at the heart of the building’s design.  The result is an economically feasible structure integrating sustainable building systems that create a distinctive residential community.
