LIVE BRILLIANTLY. It’s easy being green at LEED Gold Tellus Apartments, where smart living is the new norm. From start to every hand-selected natural finish, the building is thoughtfully designed with sustainability and environmental friendliness top of mind.

TELLUS APARTMENTS. Even the building’s name is inspired by a green theme – Tellus is the Roman goddess of the earth – reflecting the property’s overt commitment to existing in harmony with the world around it. From its integrated roof terraces and garden patios to inspired feature elements – like a custom constellation wall and centering yoga studio – and its multi-modal connectivity, this is the definition of an idyllic retreat in an ideal location.
