Austin’s hottest new apartments also happen to be nicest for the planet
Living in style is one thing, but savvy Austinites also aim to be kinder to the planet when searching for an awesome abode. They are in luck, because The Millennium Rainey Street boasts oodles of green features, as well as an enviable location in an ultra-hip neighborhood.
To start, EnergyStar windows filter the hot Texas sun and help cool down apartments. Appliances also are EnergyStar certified, meaning it takes less juice to keep your juice smoothies cold in the fridge. Energy-efficient lighting and programmable thermostats in each unit truly let you get a handle on your utility bills.
Don’t think The Millennium overlooked water conservation: In addition to drought-tolerant landscaping around the building, apartments feature low-flow water fixtures and high-efficiency toilets. Irrigation was also considered, so you can feel better about keeping the greenery outside green.
When it was being constructed, The Millennium’s builders were conscientious to recycle as they went, a decision that has continued with onsite recycling for tenants. Low VOC paints, sealants, adhesives, and carpet keep the air free of harmful fumes, helped along by high-grade air filters.
The Millennium’s address on Rainey Street doesn’t just sound cool; it also puts you within walking distance of some of Austin’s most popular bars and restaurants. If you prefer to cycle, there are bike racks, and a carpooling/rideshare program helps further reduce emissions.
Preferred parking for fuel-efficient vehicles gives you a leg up for longer trips, while electric charging stations are available too.
