The Cyan Building is Friendly on the Eyes and the Environment

The Cyan building is a modern-day urban eco success story. With 16 stories and 380,000 square feet of sustainable space, the apartment building designed by THA Architecture Inc. and GBH Architects is also LEED Gold certified.

In addition to providing affordable and convenient urban housing, the Cyan building also runs exclusively on renewable energy sources. This low-impact footprint is further improved by the fact that the building’s roof also collects rainwater into a 40,000-gallon cistern and makes use of motion-sensor lighting.
