I read today that there is a new initiative by Mark Taylor (who are a Phoenix-based apartment developers, builders, and managers) called "Go Green, Save Green". This offers new residents, who prove their commute has been shortened by moving to a Mark-Taylor property, a $1,000 savings on their rent.
Mark Taylor say that "Phoenix apartment renters are tired of paying $3-plus per gallon for gas and spending way too much time stuck in traffic. They can now save time, money and the environment by going green with Mark-Taylor Residential. We want to reward people with a savings on their rent if they cut their commute by living with us."
Mark-Taylor operates 30 resort-style apartment properties in the Phoenix area. Prospective residents will need to bring a copy of their printed maps and proof of employment to a Mark-Taylor leasing office to confirm their new, shorter and environmentally friendly commute.
Take a look at Mark-Taylor's website for more info. Interesting idea I thought...
