Lately it seems, going green is a new home improvement trend. We buy energy efficient light bulbs and appliances, special AC units and windows, and shower heads that reduce water consumption. However, if you’re wondering what else you can do to help the environment, head over to Avesta Woodlawn Park, St Pete’s very own sustainable apartment community.
Located in historic Woodlawn Park at 1626 18th Ave N, this complex is perfectly situated to offer a close proximity to downtown St Pete, yet the comfort of community living. If you have been by the complex previously, you may want to head back over in the next few months as Avesta Homes has purchased the property and is putting it through a $3M renovation plan. While the plans have already started to take place and move-ins will begin this month, the entire renovation should be executed within the next 6 months.
- Fenced yards
- Resort-style pool with free WIFI
- Fenced dog park
- Community gardens
- Covered bike racks by each building
- Private washer and dryer for each building
- Completely updated energy efficient units
Another plus that sets Woodlawn Park apart from competitors is the acceptance of large dogs. They will even have an onsite dog park and plan to host a few pooch-friendly events in the near future!
What do you think about sustainable communities and what are some of your ideas that could improve the not-so-green communities we already have?
