The Muses is on track to be the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certified apartment complex in Louisiana. What does this mean? It means The Muses rises to a new standard of green, urban living.
Renew and Rediscover
The property showcases the redevelopment of a long-vacant city block, makes use of existing infrastructure and is conveniently located near several bus and streetcar lines. Residents will benefit from The Muses' approach to energy efficiency, including whole-building energy optimization and Energy Star appliances, as well as cool-roof technology that reduces cooling costs.
Green from the Ground Up
To provide healthy indoor air quality for our residents, only low- or no-VOC paints, sealants and adhesives were used during construction. A permeable parking lot reduces the property‚€™s impact on the city storm drains, and also includes preferred parking for low-emissions vehicles. Covered bike racks will provide safe, protected storage areas for residents‚€™ bicycles. All of this amounts to lower energy costs, a reduction in carbon emissions, and improved indoor air quality. That‚€™s something to feel good about. Live Green, Live Inspired.
