The new Quaye at Palm Beach Gardens apartment complex welcomes dogs, cats and hamsters. One thing it can’t abide: smoking (or even vaping) by tenants or guests, anywhere on the grounds.

Landlord HG Management of Tampa says the no-smoking policy is part of the complex’s effort to go green. The ban extends to vaping, although there’s no rule against chewing tobacco, said Nancy Cribb, regional manager for HG Management.

She calls the smoking ban a selling point: Tenants don’t want to catch a whiff of their neighbors’ sidestream fumes.

“They won’t have to sit on their patio and smell smoke,” Cribb says.

Cribb also expects tenants will rat out scofflaws.

“Everyone’s policing everyone else,” she says.

Tenants begin moving into the Quaye on Thursday. Rents at the 340-unit complex range from $1,490 for a one-bedroom apartment to $2,510 for a four-bedroom unit.
