The hall has roof top solar panels, computer designed awnings allowing for optimal sunlight use, smart thermostats and outlets that reduce power usage when rooms are unoccupied, passive water harvesting, storm water mitigation, drought tolerant plants for landscaping, low flow water fixtures,and is constructed of recycled building materials from no farther than 600 miles away.

In addition to the knowing the buildings features, residents can monitor energy and water use through an online dashboard and physical kiosk in hall.
