Green Living at One Wingate Way East: Transforming for a Sustainable Future

Introducing One Wingate Way East, where sustainable living meets comfort and community. As we transform the former Wingate at Needham into a vibrant independent living community, we’re excited to share our commitment to sustainability and the green initiatives that are shaping this project.
From reducing our carbon footprint to enhancing the quality of life for our residents, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. Here’s a glimpse of the green initiatives we’re implementing:

  1. Going Electric: We’re proud to say that our building will be powered by electricity, with 98% of our energy coming from clean, renewable sources. By eliminating fossil fuels, we’re taking a big step towards reducing our environmental impact
    Windows for Efficiency: Our new windows with low emissivity (low-e) coatings ensure optimal insulation, keeping our interiors comfortable year-round while conserving energy.
  2. Heat Pumps for Warmth: Keeping cozy in the colder months is easy with high-efficiency electric heat pumps installed in every apartment.
    Fresh Air, Fresh Living: Breathe easy in our common areas with heat recovery ventilation systems, which ensure a constant flow of fresh air while maximizing energy efficiency.
  3. Charging Towards the Future: With outdoor electric car chargers available, residents can embrace sustainable transportation options with ease, reducing emissions and promoting cleaner air.
  4. Green Roofs for Nature: Selected areas of our building will feature green roofs, not only adding a touch of natural beauty but also providing numerous environmental benefits, such as improved air quality and habitat creation.
  5. Illuminate with LEDs: From interior spaces to the exterior, LED lighting will illuminate every corner of our community. Not only do LEDs save energy, but they also provide better quality lighting for a more comfortable and inviting atmosphere.
  6. Water Wise: We’re mindful of our water usage too. Low-flow toilets, showerheads, and faucets in all apartments and common areas help conserve water without compromising comfort.
  7. Appliances with a Purpose: From refrigerators to dishwashers, all our appliances are ENERGY STAR certified, ensuring efficiency without sacrificing performance.

At One Wingate East, sustainability isn’t just a goal; it’s a way of life. By embracing these green initiatives, we’re not only reducing our environmental footprint but also creating a healthier, more comfortable living environment for our residents.
