2600 Telegraph: Sustainability

2600 Telegraph is designed with the future in mind. The 225-unit building is located on an urban infill site within close proximity to multiple transit routes. The project is designed to be all electric and will utilize cross laminated timber (CLT) for the flooring assemblies on the upper half of the building.  2600 Telegraph is pursuing a GreenPoint Rated Gold Certification.  

Other project highlights include 15 onsite affordable homes for very-low-income households, 100% of the parking will have EV-ready infrastructure , and a solar array will power common areas of the building.

2600 Telegraph will meet Grosvenor’s 2030 Commitment to achieve Net Zero Operational Carbon through thoughtful design elements, all-electric appliances, efficient lighting and heating and cooling systems, renewable energy, and the purchase of carbon credits.
