Eco-Friendly Apartments in the Midwest | Elevate Living

Living Green with Elevate Living

The Eco Fee

Our residents pay an Eco Fee each month, which assists our properties in providing recycling, trash, water and sewer services. It may also be applied toward environmental upgrades to your community, including the installation of high efficiency toilets, LED lighting and other opportunities to live green.

What’s In It For Me?


All projects are managed by our exceptional maintenance team and outside contractors as needed. You’ll never have to worry about the work!


By collaborating with your neighbors to reduce utility costs, we can keep the cost of operating and maintaining your property to a minimum, allowing you to enjoy your home for years to come without concern for waste leading to increased rent.


You’ll love living in a community that is committed to being good environmental stewards.
