LEED Certification Takes Over Laguna Beach

October 27, 2011 at 5:41 pm 1 comment

Many people got a glimpse into the luxurious Laguna Beach lifestyle when MTV aired its reality show “Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County.” The show followed a pack of dramatic, spoiled teenagers who spent their days lounging in bathing suits outside their million-dollar homes.

Laguna Beach is back in the headlines. This time for integrating sustainable features into new home construction projects. Mark Singer and Tresor Properties in Laguna Beach developed the first LEED-certified platinum home in the wealthy California county. They are currently working on another project in the area, also with the hopes of attaining LEED Certification.

The typical home in Laguna Beach is listed at approximately $15 million and has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and 4,500 square feet of living space. Many of these homes also have the luxury of ocean views.

It is widely known that green buildings sometimes cost more money up front but that the homeowner can save loads of money over the life of the building through lower operating costs. With houses meeting the specifications listed above, it seems logical to build sustainably. Clearly the homeowners in this area can afford the upfront costs of a LEED-certified house. Later, they can enjoy the lower operating costs and therefore enjoy their extravagant lifestyles that much more.
