Eco-Friendly Living at The Esplanade
Needs vs. wants is an age old dilemma. You need a place to live, but you want it to align with your green values and local lifestyle. You want a luxury home and a vibrant community that shares your values—and that’s exactly what you’ll get at The Esplanade. At The Esplanade at National Harbor you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other. The Esplanade offers features and amenities that are not only luxe and modern, but also thoughtfully designed with your lifestyle in mind.
Breathtaking views and a great location are only the beginning of what The Esplanade has to offer. A pool for lounging is always ideal and an onsite golf simulator is almost unreal, but the one of the best perks The Esplanade offers is the ease at which it fits into your eco-friendly lifestyle. Your new apartment home was built with this very notion in mind.
Kitchens come equipped with sparkling ENERGY STAR appliances to make the most of your electricity. Not only are they stylish and efficient, they’re also an excellent way to combat the threat of brown outs experienced in the sweltering summer heat. The energy efficient gas stoves are small but pointed steps towards reducing CO2 in our environment and lowering your carbon footprint.
If you’ve got a green thumb, many Esplanade homes feature patios and terraces perfect for soaking up the sun or growing your own summer vegetables—after all, what’s more local than your own patio? The eco-friendly features don’t just stop at your door either.
With dining, retail and entertainment all nearby, National Harbor is an infinitely walkable neighborhood. The American Market farmers market every week makes it easy to support local farmers and vendors. Another step for the planet you can take is leaving your car at home and enjoying a ride in a water taxi to the marina in Alexandria, the National Mall, Georgetown or Nationals stadium. You can also stretch your legs or ride your bike on the Mount Vernon Trail that connects Virginia to the National Harbor by way of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.
Your values are important to you and they should be important to your community also. The Esplanade at National Harbor makes it easy to live green while still enjoying all the style and luxury of a modern apartment home.
