Texas developer plans eco-friendly condos in Tulum

Share This

TULUM, Q. Roo — Austin, Texas-based company Los Arboles Group debuts plans for its newest project in a long line of sustainable living developments in the Riviera Maya. Designs include a built-in wetlands system as a self-sufficient wastewater treatment and solar energy panels to keep residents as off-grid as possible.

“It’s one thing for people to live in paradise, to live there as foreigners but to not help establish what the community could be,” says Developer Greg Schnurr. “When you decide to be a resident of paradise, it’s your responsibility to give back.”


Tulum512 is a 40-unit condominium in the heart of Tulum Pueblo. It is located directly off Tulum Beach Road, and its prime location gives residents access to the beach, the jungle, the ruins, and downtown Tulum. Tulum512 runs almost completely off-grid and uses a wetlands system to convert waste into water for the local flora and fauna. An on-site rainwater collection, weekly farmer’s markets, and cycling lifestyle make Tulum512 the dream residence for the sustainably-minded, according to the developer.

LAG has demonstrated complete commitment to responsible building in Mexico with its last two projects: Los Arboles Tulum and Los Arboles Coba. Lead developer Greg Schnurr has become the leading example in Mexican real estate development with his eco-friendly practices. In his past projects, he has employed local Mayans, represented artisan crafts and used exclusively sustainable materials, and protected populations of endangered species.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally
    educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something
    relating to this.

    I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with
    the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or
    did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to
    see a great blog like this one these days.
