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.
