Verdigris Group Wins the 18th Annual People's Choice Award and Best Overall Real Estate Development Award for The Residences at Tenderfoot House
Verdigris Group wins the 18th Annual People's Choice Award for their latest development, The Residences at Tenderfoot House recognizing the best in new construction real estate development.
Chicago, IL (I-Newswire) February 5, 2013 - Verdigris Group dominated the 18th Annual Parade of Homes Award Ceremony by winning the most awards, winning five out of six including Best Overall, Best Sustainability, Best Curb Appeal, Best Interior Finishes, and Best Interior Furnishings in the multi-family development category.
Verdigris Group’s latest development, The Residences at Tenderfoot House is also honored by winning Mountain Living Magazine’s 2012 People’s Choice Award signifying overall best new development project as determined by over 3000 individuals from all over the country who participated in this year’s Parade of Homes.
“Earning the People’s Choice Award is an energizing and humbling experience” said Garratt Hasenstab, Director of Development with Verdigris Group. “We certainly poured our heart and soul into this project, so it is rewarding to know that the Parade of Homes participants enjoyed our project enough to vote for our residences as their favorite!”
The Residences at Tenderfoot House, located on the slopes at Breckenridge Ski Resort, are luxury, ski-in/ski-out, 4 bedroom/3 bathroom, custom single-family residences. The tried-and-true real estate maxim “Location. Location. Location.” says it all. Not only is this setting ideal for year-round recreation, and situated in the idyllic ski-town of Breckenridge, but the truly stunning, ‘million-dollar views’ of the entire Breckenridge Ski Resort are dazzling from behind the 20 feet of glass and spacious decks on the front elevations of these residences.
Verdigris Properties, the development division of the visionary, carbon-neutral real estate company Verdigris Group, developed this project with the lofty goal of achieving the prestigious LEED Platinum Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council as well as an astonishing 5-star plus home energy rating certification under the EPA’s Energy Star for Homes Program earning a HERS index (think MPG for homes) of 57, which means that this property performs at least 43% greater efficiency than a home built simply to current building-code, and achieved the highest score yet accomplished under the Summit County Sustainable Building Code.
"These residences’ high-performance energy efficiency measures result in significant energy cost savings - we're talking huge energy cost savings compared to new homes simply built to current code" says Hasenstab, who also serves as the lead green building consultant on this project and holds the LEED Accredited Professional designation with the US Green Building Council, with a specialization in Building Design & Construction (LEED AP BD+C).
Hasenstab continues, "The mechanical, heating and ventilation systems ensure an exceedingly healthy, comfortable and easily controlled living environment by providing a consistent flow of fresh air through the utilization of a heat recovery ventilator system and smart technology that learns the residents’ habits and adjust accordingly." The locally-sourced and sustainable materials used in construction confirm a sustainable life-style. The incredible location guarantees direct access to both an abundance of recreational activities right outside your front door, as well the bustling shopping, dining and entertainment found below in the historic mountain town of Breckenridge. These homes really have it all, and are most certainly unique in the marketplace.
Cost is an often cited argument against green building. Now a zero carbon study by the Ecovillage Partnership published in ECOS Magazine suggests the tables may have started to turn. Building green, it says, can take years off the average mortgage and save hundreds of thousands of dollars. ‘The study showed that we have reached a tipping point, where it makes sense to invest in carbon neutral housing, with the rising cost of energy, water and oil and the decreasing cost of sustainable systems like solar panels’. And further, ‘We found that building this way can be really important for creating economic security, let alone reducing environmental impacts.’ This recent study supports Verdigris Group’s policy of only developing projects that achieve the highest levels of sustainability.
Verdigris Group has raised the bar yet again. The Residences at Tenderfoot House development represents the greenest, most energy-efficient, luxury ski-in/ski-out homes yet to come to market.
