The South Group, an eco-friendly developer, has just finished building Los Angeles’ only “official”, sustainable, high-rise community. The company’s 19 story Luma is the second condo development, in all of California, to receive LEED Gold certification. The South Group built the only other LEED Gold Certified building as well. The Elleven was certified in October last year, and is Luma’s sister building. The company was able to achieve the certification by using environmentally friendly finishes, buying locally and using recycled materials whenever possible. They also installed energy efficient heating systems and water efficient fixtures. The company is finishing off a third building, Evo, which will soon join Luma and Ellevan in LEED Gold.
