ECO Modern Flats in Fayetteville, Arkansas, is a one of-a-kind rehabilitation of a 1960s apartment building. Developed by Specialized Real Estate Group and designed by Modus Studio, it is the first multifamily building in the state to be certified LEED Platinum.

ECO Modern Flats is not only designed according to sustainable principles, it also promotes a healthy lifestyle for its residents. Bio-based spray foam insulation and non-VOC paints and finishes reduce the amount of chemicals that residents are exposed to. A ductless heating and cooling system reduces mold, mildew, and dust accumulation, as do concrete floors that do not harbor dust or other allergens and are easy to clean. A strictly enforced nonsmoking policy—the first of its kind in the region—protects residents from secondhand smoke.
