Recently I bumped into such an interesting discussion on green building trends on the tube. If you are interested in trends in our industry in terms of sustainable design,here's a bit of information that seems pertinent . As I sat glued to the screen, I thought of my pals at AR, real estate professionals and our clients, especially those looking to the future. So, I took notes.
The discussion took place right here in North Carolina where sustainable innovation is spurring the imagination in the real estate industry these days. In fact, WNC Healthy Built Homes® (see photo I took not too long ago)are in huge demand here in the Greater Asheville area..
We are expecting 400 of them to be built in the Asheville area in 2008, and we don't know if that will half cover the demand. Seems "green" has gone mainstream. But then you know that smart buyers/investors want energy savings and efficiency these days.
The discussion spotlighted experts whose vision and projects bring to the forefront "green" designs in sync with sustainable design practices. They clued me in to valuable information to help me (all of us) predict future trends in real estate verifying my intuition that it is possible for sustainable design theories and "green" (environmentally friendly) design practices to come together in the architectural world.
As New Raleigh pointed out, " The conversation was engrossing, the crowd was ecstatic . . .[oferring] the reconciliation of design with green practice through smart aesthetics with green fundamentals built in. [and underscoring] that economic incentives where important to get wide spread adoption of best practices.
I'm watching the green trends and hoping they don't get "washed" out. How about you?
