“With EcoFlats, JP Veillet & his team decided to be a ‘part of the solution’ by balancing simplicity, sophistication, and sustainability, not to mention the difficult balance of achieving commercial success with a progressive approach.”

-James Curleigh, CEO Gibson Guitars

In an effort to distribute energy conservation and affordably, Eco flats maximizes photo-voltaic and solar thermal energy generation and relies on orientation, natural ventilation, access to light and air, and day lighting to harness state-of-the-art technology bolstered by both common sense and old-world knowledge. Monitors in the lobby display each unit’s energy consumption, providing extra incentive for individual environmental responsibility. The project has been recognized by The New York Times, Portland Business Journal, Portland Monthly and NPR Multi-family news.
