Green development is rooted not just in technology, but in a whole body of knowledge. It begins at the regional level, and sustainable development permeates throughout multiple aspects of community. In his “Green by Design” presentation at the NAHB 2018 International Builders’ Show®, Senen M.A. Antonio, Partner at DPZ CoDESIGN, outlined the key driving principles of green development. Four Florida Panhandle communities—Seaside, Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach and WaterColor—were used to illustrate concepts; the oldest, Seaside, was built in the 1980s. Each community is a model for successfully integrating sustainable development principles.
