LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally-recognized green building certification system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The buildings are certified LEED Platinum, the highest level rating for this rigorous certification system.
The only 2 utilities you need to pay for are Electric and Water. We strongly urge you to use The Energy Co-op as your electric supplier. They have a 100% renewable option that is competitive with PECO’s rates.
You will receive a water bill from Levesque Urban, LLC every month for water service and usage. Levesque Urban pays a portion of the service fee.
In order to keep the Heating and Air Conditioning in good working order, we have a maintenance plan with our HVAC contractor. They will perform maintenance on the systems once a season (4 times a year). This will require entry into the apartments to change filters/clean the system/etc. We will give as much headsup as possible, no shorter than 24 hours notice. We apologize for the disturbance.
