MBK Rental Living

MBK Rental Living has launched With Our World, a comprehensive program to create healthier living spaces that better serve its residents while also caring for the planet.

Organized into three tracks—pro-people, pro-planet, and pro-action—the program will provide amenities that enhance residents’ quality of life and focus on high-performance, conscious design that reduces each MBK community’s environmental impact. The program will encourage residents to engage with their surrounding community and act on matters that are important to them.

“This three-tier approach sets With Our World apart from other green initiatives,” says Lisa Cabral, senior manager of marketing and design at MBK. “With Our World allows us to celebrate sustainable and responsible living, elevate it as a central tenet of our residences, and prove that it can be done without sacrificing comfort or at the expense of great design.”

Vida at Morgan Hill will be the first residential community to debut the With Our World program. The Class A, 389-unit, three-story residential community in Morgan Hill, California, recently celebrated its grand opening. With a mix of high-tech and thoughtful design decisions, Vida on Morgan Hill features on-site solar panels, electric vehicle charging stations, and smart thermostats, making it easy for residents to enjoy a high quality of life while leaving a lighter footprint.

"With Our World represents a strategic evolution in our development philosophy," says Ken McCarren, president of MBK Rental Living. "This program goes beyond incorporating eco-friendly features. It establishes a comprehensive approach to sustainable living, empowering residents, fostering a sense of community, and minimizing our environmental impact."

The program is set to roll out across other MBK residential communities, both new and existing. As sustainability has always been a key consideration of every MBK project, the With Our World initiative reinforces the company’s ongoing commitment to developing spaces that support residents and the wider community. With Our World also aligns with the core tenets of MBK’s parent company, Mitsui & Co., which focuses on business innovation including a strong commitment to environmental and social sustainability.

Cabral adds, “We look forward to providing new housing opportunities that showcase this sustainable approach to life in 2024 and beyond.”
