urban. vibrant. coveted.

I’ve now enjoyed living at Carbon12 for a year, and am most thrilled with the community and neighborhood amenities. I absolutely love being able to walk to many of the city’s best restaurants, shops, yoga, grocery stores, and parks. I am also able to run all my daily errands on foot and rarely use my car. The overall feeling is energetic, current, and youthful, and being a part of the community has greatly enhanced my lifestyle.
