Florida-based developer to enter hospitality sector as the category leader for developing turn-key sustainable communities suitable for eco-conscious travelers

The Pearl Homes team was presented with the certification for its Hunters Point Model Home at the 2019 Greenbuild Conference in Chicago

SARASOTA, Fla. – December 16, 2019. Pearl Homes, the developer of sustainable smart home communities and the leader in LEED-certified residential development announced today that it has fulfilled the requirements of LEED Zero Energy, as verified by Green Business Certification Inc., for its Hunters Point resort unit. Pearl Homes is now evaluating potential partnerships with leading hospitality brands to determine the viability for a resort at Hunter’s Point as well as other parts of the U.S.

The Pearl Home is the first single-family home in the world to receive the LEED Zero Certification. The Pearl Homes team was recognized for this milestone at the 2019 Greenbuild Conference in Chicago and presented with a certificate from Mahesh Ramanujam, President & CEO of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

"The Pearl Homes team accepted the LEED Zero Energy challenge and we’re proud to certify the Hunters Point Model Home as the first LEED Zero single family home in the world," said Mahesh Ramanujam, President & CEO, USGBC, “This project is not only an example of sustainability, it demonstrates the power of the Pearl Homes leadership in transforming the homebuilding industry.”

LEED Zero Energy recognizes buildings or spaces that achieve a source energy use balance of zero over a period of 12 months. The Hunters Point Model Home is a cleaner, healthier, smart home equipped with the latest in sustainability, smart home and high-efficiency technologies including Google Home Smart Speaker and Home Assistant®, rooftop solar arrays paired with a sonnen intelligent residential energy management system, Energy Star Appliances and WaterSense high-efficiency fixtures and Hunter® Smart Irrigation. sonnen’s Energy Automation technology allows for efficient management of energy to power the home’s connected devices with cleaner energy and provides smarter backup power functionality both before and during a grid outage.

As part of its continued commitment as a pioneer and leader in sustainable home design, Pearl Homes also announced plans to certify all future projects under USGBC’s recently-announced LEED Positive vision, one that encourages development to allow buildings to act as vehicles for environmental restoration and repair. Pearl Homes will adhere to these standards for all future projects in its pipeline, including the 82-home Hunters Point Resort in Cortez, FL and the 720-unit OurLives community in Ellenton, FL, as well as a number of unannounced projects in other parts of the United States.

“sonnen’s mission is to provide a clean, reliable and affordable energy future for everyone. By incorporating our intelligent energy management solution in their LEED Zero Energy design, Pearl Homes has set a new standard in clean, efficient and smart home communities that are attainable for everyone,” said Adam Gentner, Senior Director of Revenue, sonnen, Inc. “We congratulate Pearl Homes on this landmark achievement and look forward to continuing to work closely with them to elevate the future of living comfortably and sustainably.”

“From day one we’ve sought to build more than just a completely sustainable community for eco-conscious individuals, but one that is scalable and sustainable as a business. Having demonstrated the ability to do this at the residential level, we are excited to explore the potential of partnering with hospitality brands seeking properties suitable for the growing population of eco-conscious travelers,” said Marshall Gobuty, Founder and President of Pearl Homes. “We want to emphasize that we’re not talking about the future of homebuilding, we’re building it and making it available to consumers, today. While Hunters Point may be based in Florida, the concept is transferable to any place the sun shines and given our strength in relationships with innovative technology companies like sonnen and Google – the sky is the limit."
