The project is Bosques de Escazú, which the developer, Grupo RC, calls the the biggest and most ambitious residential ecological project that has been seen in the country. Plans call for four condo towers, each with 28 units.
The location is in Jaboncillo de Escazú, which is between the Country Day School and the Paco commercial center. The first tower is scheduled to be done by this time next year, according to a press release in the name of Fuad Farach Caldera, general manager.
The project is in a mountainous area of some 23,000 square meters or about 5.7 acres. Two adjacent hectares will be reforested with the help of experts from the Universidad Nacional in Heredia, said the release. That’s about five acres.
Plans call for the use of solar energy, a modern sewage treatment plant for the project and the use of natural ventilation to avoid the use of air conditioners, said the firm.
Work on the first tower will start in March, and the construction phase will take about two years, said the firm.
