One of the first GBCSA registered Multi-Unit Residential Pilot projects in South Africa is being planned for Port Elizabeth, South Africa. To be developed by Fusion Properties, the project will consist of 5 individual units sloping into the Baakens Valley, a verdant area which is often thought of as the “lungs of the city”. Targeting a 4 Star rating, the homes will incorporate various ‘green building’ principles including green roofs, sustainable building materials and passive design.

    Its great to have buildings like these. I agree with Sarunds, green buildings are surely appealing, soothing to the eyes and whats more it helps to protect the earth. Wish that all building projects in many countries will start implementing green buildings as well.

    Cant wait to see these actually built. They will hopefully set a new standard in PE and encourage more developers to look at Green alternatives.
