Low rise and hi rise complex at Wellesley west of Sherbourne St,
" Verve has been designed with numerous environmentally preferred features. These include a central heat-recovery ventilator system that will provide cleaner, fresher air in a more cost effective manner, as well as energy saving compact fluorescent lighting, high efficiency ENERGY STAR® appliances, water saving toilets, faucets and showers, low maintenance plank floors, landscaped rooftop terraces, recycling facilities and increased natural lighting to reduce electricity consumption and increase personal comfort. Residents will benefit from environmentally preferable corridor carpeting, wall coverings, adhesives, coatings and paints with low volatile organic compounds that help to minimize toxic odours, both in their suite and in the buildings common areas.
Verve is also expected to outperform Canada's Model National Energy Code by a significant margin, which will translate directly into cost savings. Each suite will be individually metered for electricity, water, heating and cooling, so that residents who use less energy in their suites will benefit from lower utility costs. And, wherever possible, Tridel has selected durable building materials that have the lowest environmental impact, and are either capable of being reused, salvaged or have a high level of recycled content to minimize waste."
