More sustainable living, by design.
The Fred sets new sustainable building standards for Edina, in line with what our future residents want and value. Our energy use footprint is about 30% lower than other, similar new construction projects. Additionally, Solhem’s sister company, Renew 22, generates enough solar power to cover the energy needs of The Fred and other Solhem built apartment units in the metro.
At The Fred, we offer electric car plug-ins, extensive on-site stormwater recycling systems, bike storage at every parking stall and organics recycling in addition to other energy-saving features. Simply put, The Fred is more sustainable, by design.
