Residents of L.A. can now apply to live in the city’s first ever net-zero apartments.

The building is called Hanover Olympic, and ground first broke back in 2014.

Twenty units are designated ‘eco units’ boasting LED lighting, Nest thermostats, Energy Star appliances and reclaimed wood floors to further reduce the building’s footprint. These units are powered by ten photovoltaic panels, with an addition 220 panels on the roof pumping energy into the surrounding grid.

There’s an on-site gym, private screening room, and some units even come with dog-washing stations for your four-legged roommates.

The cheapest unit is $2,100, which is expensive, but from our humble home in NYC that price seems surprisingly affordable for a brand new high-end apartment in the heart of L.A., especially when you consider the energy solutions knock around $100 off your bills each month.
