Luxury multifamily high-rise residential building
Fifteen Fifty is a 40-story luxury apartment building that is home to the first permitted and approved onsite greywater operation in San Francisco’s city history. Related, one of the largest real estate developers in the United States, implemented a pioneering water reuse approach both to comply with San Francisco’s Article 12C water reuse ordinance and to make an important sustainability statement at a moment when California was grappling with its worst drought in 1200 years. The 550 unit residential tower also includes 40,000 square feet of retail space and a 12,000 square foot park.
Operated and maintained by Epic, the onsite water reuse system has the capacity to recycle 7,500 gallons of greywater per day (or over 2.5 million gallons per year) and will save Related more than $90,000 annually on utility costs over the next 10 years.
