A very exciting announcement came out about Sanibel Island's first GREEN residential development.  As most know, there is very little property remaining on Sanibel Island that is able to be developed.  Over 65% of Sanibel is under conservation restrictions so any building of multiple units is big news. 

This project is a collaborative arrangement between Benchmark Construction, the Florida Community Design Center and the University of Florida School of Architecture that will bring forth a cluster of 12 single family homes on a 12 acre parcel along Periwinkle Way.  The project will be located on the previous site of the Old Schoolhouse Theater.  The mission of the project is "to create and optimize a sustainable, environmentally sensitive design that could become a model for future development of coastal communities in our region."

The objective of any GREEN development is to create a more sustainable situation for the environment.  This is done, for example,  through the use of cluster housing -  less impact on the environment, building materials that are energy efficient, renewable and kind to the environment, building systems that conserve water and power.  

This is totally in keeping with Sanibel Island and I am really looking forward to seeing where it goes.  I'll keep you posted.  For more info
