Sustainability

STONE, WOOD, LIGHT...

Tejon34 is forging its own path in getting back to nature. Energy efficient systems are combined with environmentally sensitive, locally sourced materials, including brick, stone and steel. Generously sized windows, accented with large, wood timbers, capture and disperse light throughout each home.

  • Site Selection
    An urban infill site reduces the need for construction of new street and utility infrastructure, and supports
    the efficiency and viability of mass transport systems and local businesses.

    Site Surfaces
    Landscaping and porous materials are used to the maximum extent possible along with light colored hard surface materials to reduce heat absorption ( the urban heat island effect), and allow ground water absorption.

    On-site energy generation
    The rooftop for all units has been designed to maximize the potential area for homebuyers to add photo-voltaic or water-based solar systems.

    Location in a pedestrian-oriented neighborhood
    This reduces a resident’s dependence upon automobiles and fossil fuels and establishes a stronger sense of community for the resident. The Highland neighborhood is in the top 95% of walkable neighborhoods in Denver.

    Reclaimed materials from the site
    The former flagstone city sidewalks have been incorporated into the masonry porch and building walls.
