Frequently asked questions
Why is noox PVR the right location for me?
All noox concepts appel to carbon footprint, energy-conscious consumers thet appreciate tastesful, unique living spaces. For this PVR development, please keep reading for more about our development practives.
Sustainability is considered to be a very important element of this project. We commit to making the most of local natural resources inside and outside of each living space with capturing and redirecting sunlight, coastal breezes, rainwater, and by really celebrating nature conservation. Some of our specific worls include:
All horizontal and vertical housing is to be equipped with photovoltaic panels and ancillary equipment for generating solar electricity. We consider taht this equipment will cover around 30% of electricity consmption in the develepment´s shared spaces.
Solar water heaters are to be installed for hot showers, heated pools (when needed), and common areas. We consider this equipment will account for a 30% reduction in total gas consumption across the development.
Rainwater colletion equipment from rooftops is to be channeled into tanks, wich supply water for chashing cars, maintaining green garden spaces, etc.
High performance, double-glazed windows reduce solar heat gain and deliver acostic insulation, wich help keep cool spaces cool and provide noise pollution control. Overhang shading systems serve to reduce additional electrocity consumption from air- conditioning. By ensuring that windows, doors, and skylights are as energy-efficient as possible, we save energy ; reduce heating, cooling and lights costs; and improve the overall comfort across the development on hot summer days. We approach this fenestration process with floor.toceiling windows and raised entryways save energy; reduce heating, cooling, and lighting costs; and improve the overall comfort across the development on hot summer days. We approach this fenestration process with floor-to-ceiling windows and raised entryways, plus panel windows / sliding glass doors wherever possible. The result is easy airflow and natural ventilation in each living space.The air-conditioning utilization will depend largely on the condo size as well as the mechanical engineering We estimate that the AC units will utilize equipment such as:
5 Ton 14 SEER Air Conditioner Condenser with R410A Refrigerant Model: GSX140601 Item Number: 26115 (3 for each condo).
Construction-free areas represent ~70% of noox PVR’s total land area, i.e. 14.38 acres (58,176 m2).
To achieve all the above, we considered the positioning of each building and associated orientation to be an important design premise. Each tower equally welcomes high winds off the coast, creating interior cross-ventilation, and in turn, optimizes day-lighting distribution.
Additionally, we considered how energy consumption will occur via energy-efficient equipment, with the following highlights:
All lighting will be via low-consumption LED sources
Placements of dual flush option toilets (liquids/solids)
Installation of low-water consumption faucets and showers
Installation of zero-water consumption urinals
These, among other measures, are considered to make this development an energy-efficient project. Still curious? Check out some of our previous developments with similar energy-efficient achievements with

What are my options to invest in the noox PVR project?
Join the future of real estate co-ownership on the blockchain, by acquiring shares in beachfront, prime property on the Pacific Coast. This nooxPVR project will be completed via crowdsourced funds in various stages. Each development stage will require a certain level of investor financial commitment in order to be completed.
There are two ways to invest - 1) purchasing property outright and/or 2) buying stocks.
Both types of shareholders will have an advantageous opportunity to be involved in this profit-sharing project. In plain English: The earlier an investor invests, the better his cost/benefit ratio will be.
In this second scenario, buyers can acquire condos/ houses at deeply discounted rates - up to 50% of final market prices.
There are early investor privileges. For the first type of investor, s/he will purchase a condo/home at a deeply discounted market rate. For the second type of investor, s/he receives a higher rate of return on their monetary investment.

As a foreigner, how can I buy a noox property? I’m not Mexican by birth and haven’t bought any property in Mexico to date.
Foreigners can buy and invest without problem in this Puerto Vallarta Noox.
In the initial phase, they are partners in a real estate project through a
Noox Puerto Vallarta SAPI, which is an Investment Promotional Corporation, that allows for foreign investment by individuals. This same title allows foreigners to credit their investments (capital and profits) through the same condo purchased with us.
There is also the option to buy in via traditional methods. This option occurs via a trust designed exclusively for this purpose, given that the project development is classified or designated as a Condominium System/Scheme.
Here’s a well-written description of what Buying Property in Mexico’s Restricted Zone will require. This article was prepared by an independently-operating law practice, also located in Puerto Vallarta. The noox PVR development is less than 50 km from tidewater, so it falls within the ‘restricted zone’ category.
In order to expedite the purchasing process for your noox PVR property as a foreigner, we have established a bank trust (fideicomiso). Under this purchasing option, a sample
noox PVR property purchase contract agreement may be reviewed in the following:
Bilingual Modelo Contract nooxPVR.
Note: If the purchasing party chooses to rent his/her purchased property to third parties, per his/her equity shares within noox PVR, this lucrative activity is pre-authorized. To review the details of your prospective member equity, please see the following: OPERATING RULES | PVR STOCK SERIES.
I don’t really speak Spanish that well. I want to be able to be sure I understand everything clearly. Who would be recommended as a bilingual lawyer or accountant?
Please seek the advice and local representation of a qualified legal professional(s) about your individual situation and purchase plans.
Food for thought: If you buy property in Mexico, have a legal Mexican will written and filed by a Mexican attorney. This will save your loved ones a lot of time.
