The Green initiative in the Condo industry has really taken off in the past few years and developers are beginning to recognise its importance in the marketplace.

One of the earliest adopters of the ‘Green Condo’ movement was Minto, who are now raising the ‘green’ bar even higher with their Minto775 [map] development.

Their tagline ‘Find you happy place’ is pretty all encompassing but possibly rooted in the fact that you get a warm and fuzzy feeling inside from the fact that you are helping save the planet by living there!

The amount of green initiatives that minto are including in this project is as long as Yonge Street.

Take for instance the minto inspired HRV fan coil (don’t worry, we don’t know what this is either, but with a little help from our good friends over at Google: Heat Recovery Ventilator – It pulls air in from outside and heats the air through a heat exchanger.)

“It wasn’t our first experience with it, but it is definitely the most innovative piece of technology that we’ve put into our buildings, with the biggest impact,” says Andrew Pride, Vice President of the Minto Green Team.

“But it is the most boring product you could ever think of because no one can ever actually see it. And if you do see it, you look at it say, ‘yes, that’s a fan coil.’ Yet it delivers fantastic energy savings and brings in super-fresh air. It cleans up the air magnificently and provides a circulation path in a condominium that no one has ever seen before.”
