The 13 story, 107 unit apartment building was opened in early 2014 and is LEED Gold Certified. The sustainable features create apartments that are estimated up to 25% more efficient than standard apartments. Some notable features of Etta are the high efficiency façade system, rainwater collection, and high efficiency lights and HVAC systems. Located at the corner of two prominent and transit filled streets, 1285 Sutter St. has a perfect walk score of 100.
The structure of the Etta Apartments complimented, and added to the sustainable features described above.

By using a higher level of recycled content in the concrete and using advanced techniques for the structural design, the structure was built with a smaller carbon footprint.
