At Coastal Virginia’s newest metropolitan center and lifestyle community, living and working in luxury go hand in hand with being green.
Summit Pointe features lush green spaces, including outdoor cafes and an urban pocket park where residents and visitors alike can gather. Pollinator plants around campus attract bees, so important for supporting biodiversity.
Summit pointe’s buildings are constructed with energy-effcient argon-enclosed curtain glass walls and HVAC systems. On top of the second floor at 555 Belaire, a green roof with succulents promotes sustainability by needing less energy for cooling and heating. Solar heat helps the plants grow and minimizes the heat flux, while additional roof insulation helps keep the building cool by reducing the loss of cold air.
Pedestrain pathways and proximity to public transportation also help make Summit Pointe environmetally friendly. You can live here, work here and dine here- and not have to drive. And if you drive,all three garages,where parking is free, offer charging stations for electric vehicles.
Police officers can pull right up to Pale Horse Coffee at 531 Belaire to grab a cup of joe. A parking spot in front of the coffeehouse is reserved just for them.
Veteran-owned Pale Horse carries a multitude of single-origin coffees and a full line of flavored coffees. Beans from around the world are roasted locally using a unique air roasting method that makes Pale Horse coffee especially smooth.
