A wind turbine mounted on the roof generates enough energy for the shared facilities, including communal lighting and elevators. Rainwater is collected from the roof and balconies to supply water for toilets and washing machines. The development also includes a free on-site gym, a deli, a community car club, bike storage, and plots of growing space nearby for residents to grow their own fruits and veggies.
