According to the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), there are over 150,000 LEED-certified eco-friendly houses around the world, with that number growing every day. Not only do they decrease an individual’s carbon footprint, green homes and green condos save consumers money by decreasing water and energy consumption, sometimes by as much as 20 to 30 percent. Eco-friendly homes also maximize fresh air indoors while minimizing exposure to airborne toxins and pollutants.
At Tropicasa, we are proud to be working with Max Living and Design on The Summit project. This green development effort will include eight eco-townhomes and a sky terrace. The Summit will have all the luxuries you would expect, without the environment picking up the tab
Green Homes Touch Every Aspect of Our Lives
Today’s eco-friendly houses are more than just spaces that offer shelter; they touch almost every aspect of our lives and contribute to our overall sense of identity and community. Enhancing the efficiency of our homes not only benefits our family; it further revolutionizes sustainable building and living practices so that our communities benefit as well.
Due to increased demand for sustainable development, Tropicasa Realty has evolved to create sustainable business practices that will benefit both our customers and the community. As a leading real estate agency in Puerto Vallarta with 20 years of experience, our team is currently focused on collaborating with sustainable developments that contribute to the long-term success of our region.
For instance, we are pleased to be involved in the Nemi ecovilla, a one-of-a-kind environmentally-responsible living experience. The villa was built with repurposed, local or sustainable materials on a jungle-lined hillside in Amapos with incredible ocean views from every point.
Villa nemi seamlessly combines luxury living with sustainability. Repurposed shipping containers are an ideal material for coastal living as they can stand up to the elements. Reclaimed woods adds warmth and beauty, while 15 solar panels power most of the structure.
Perhaps the crowning glory of Villa Nemi is the 40-foot swimming pool, which is a natural eco system of plant life, along with sand filters and UV pumps, creating a safe, holistic swimming experience. Absolutely no chemicals or salt is used, so residents and guests may enjoy the outdoor bar and expansive deck without worrying about their health and safety.
