By Sophia Doloresco

Did you know Arizona now has net zero energy apartment complexes? Check out Equinox, one of Scottsdale’s newest apartment complexes promoting a healthier lifestyle and luxury living, with over 1,000 solar panels delivering energy to the community.

Arizona’s first net-zero energy complex was achieved through the collaboration of VIRIDIS and MODUS Development. Combining MODUS Development’s environmentally friendly design and the VIRIDIS group’s close knit-team, the duo set out to create a modern yet welcoming development.

“Equinox combines energy-saving techniques with modern design and high-end finishes to redefine eco-friendly urban living, and that’s what MODUS is all about,” said Ed Gorman, MODUS Development Founder & President, in an official press release. “Equinox is already 29 percent leased and we are just now officially open. That says something about how special this property really is.”
