In building Carbon12, quality was woven into every decision. Price influences includes:
Location: valuable, urban land that offers convenient access to all parts of the city.
Construction technology: By using cross-laminated timber (CLT), we’ve minimized impact on the environment and neighborhood. CLT is a stronger and more insulative material that’s sustainable and renewable.
Unique: Carbon12 isn’t your average condominium, especially with features including: secure mechanical parking system, solar-ready roof, spacious patios for each unit and an elevator that opens right into your residence.
How many parking spaces do I get?
Units on floors 2-4 are granted one parking space; units on floors 5-8 are granted two.
Can I purchase additional parking or storage?
Are pets allowed?
Of course! However, there is a maximum of two pets per unit and dog weight cannot exceed 90 pounds.
