TLofts: Sustainable Urban Living in West LA

Upscale sustainable housing options are popping up across the nation.  We explored the Riverhouse in NYC - luxury condos fit for eco celebs.  On the west coast, TLofts are celebrating sustainable living with spacious, eco-minded townhomes - centrally located and designed to minimize your environmental impact.
A joint project by premier development company, Lee Homes, and investor, City View, TLofts celebrated their grand opening this past Saturday with an urban block party and are now available for purchase.  The micro-community setting offers luxurious urban spaces in 1, 2, and 3-bedroom options with an assortment of onsite amenities and a convenient location for shopping, dining, and recreation.
The Lofts
The 4-story contemporary buildings house one and two-story lofts and townhomes, available in 6 unique and spacious floorplans.  Most units feature natural concrete and acoustic cork flooring for maximum privacy and comfort, large walk-in closets, and are prewired for all your electronic networking needs.  
Choose from:
  • One bedroom/1 bath flats, averaging 1000 square-feet;
  • Two-story 1 bedroom/3 bath townhome with over 2000 square-feet, featuring spacious den and office space;
  • Two bedroom/2.5 baths housed in a 2-story townhome design with 1400 square feet;
  • An 1800 square-foot 3 bed/3 bath option;
  • Or the 1600 square-foot 2 bedroom plus option, featuring a bonus room ideal for a 3rd bedroom, den, or office.
TLofts also offers six work/live space residences - a two story layout featuring expansive office space on the lower level and spacious personal living space above.  
Sustainability
The TLofts community was created on previously developed space, reusing the existing structures and relocating unneeded dirt and concrete to minimize the need for new materials.  Framing construction is factory built rather than onsite and reflective roofing material achieves greater energy efficiency within the units.
Inside, you'll find low VOC paints and natural materials, recirculating HVAC systems, dual-flush toilets and thermostatic showers, Energy-Star appliances and lighting, and low-e glazed windows.  From the landscaping to the construction, every effort has been made to make TLofts as environmentally-friendly as possible - earning the community the California Green Builder accreditation.  
Amenities and Features
TLofts are designed for active, social, and sustainable lifestyles.  Each residence includes 2 parking spaces within the secure community garage.  The garage also features 18 electric vehicle charging stations and abundant bicycle storage.  Guest parking is also available within the covered garage.
Access to the buildings are convenient and secure, with a private lobby and elevator for convenience.  All residents can enjoy the community conference room and exercise facilities or may head outdoors to enjoy the landscaped courtyard, complete with a barbecue area and outdoor spa.
Each unit boasts an eco-friendly Smart Kitchen with an intriguing u-shaped design.  In addition to elegant Italian cabinetry and CaesarStone countertops, the kitchens include spacious slide-out pantries, out-of-site recycling and trash receptacles, and breakfast bars designed to seat 4.  Five-burner gas ranges and Energy-Star microwaves, dishwashers, and refrigerators are also available with each residence to complete the ultimate gourmet cooking experience.

Spacious, convenient, and sustainable TLofts have just been placed on the market, starting at $415,000.  If you're ready to enjoy an eco-urban lifestyle in sunny West LA or would like more information on the residences available, the TLofts sales center is open daily and appointments can be made by calling 310-477-7733.
