A green residential building: Arya Residences

I received an e-mail a couple of days ago from a real estate professional exhorting me–and probably a dozen other people–to check out Arya Residences by ArthaLand. Since I’m always ready to sneer, I was just about to do so until I came upon this portion of the e-mail:

Setting a new standard at the prestigious Bonifacio Global City, Arya Residences gives its future residents the chance to Live Well, enjoying the comforts of gracious living, and to Live Right, leading a greener, healthier and more cost efficient lifestyle. 
We are the first environmentally sustainable high rise residential in the Philippines registered with the USGBC’S LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program with a certification goal of Gold.

Okay, now I’m impressed. That’s Gold, people. They must have really pulled out all the stops on this one. Completely unrelated: The same day I received the e-mail, I came across a full-page ad for Arya Residences in the newspaper. A sign that I should invest in a unit? Nah, probably just a reminder for me to check it out myself and learn more about how they made it green.
