VERDE Green InitiativesDevelopment. Construction. Living.
At Verde, every aspect of our Hershey, PA apartment was thoughtfully designed and developed to promote green living and a healthy lifestyle. Each of our apartment rentals in Hershey offer amenities like GE energy efficient appliances in the kitchen, energy efficient windows and doors, high-efficiency hot water heating, and much more.
Our commitment to green living doesn’t stop inside the apartments. We want our residents to live the lifestyle they want, which is why we are also building a brand-new community building with a state-of-the-art fitness center, so residents can live a healthy lifestyle in the comforts of their home.
