Little Gables Green Homes Green Ribbon Ceremony

Little Gables Green Home SketchOn Sunday, the Little Gables Green Homes were wrapped in pretty green eco-friendly bows for the official ribbon cutting ceremony.  Joining architect and developer at the event were his partners Jorge Milian of MDG Builders, and Richard K. Jones of Coltrain-Jones Architects.  Also attending were Karen Shane, president of the Little Gables Neighborhood Association; Manuel Orbis Jr., special projects liaison for Miami-Dade Commission chair Rebeca Sosa; and Raul Valdez-Fauli, president and CEO of Professional Bank.

The developers broke ground in January 2013, and as I reported then: The two 3-bedroom homes will have approximately 2,000 square feet of “flexible interior floor plan” with an adaptable bonus room. Green features will include:

  • Reinforced insulated concrete walls
  • Tinted impact-resistant windows
  • LED and compact florescent light fixtures controlled through wireless programmable switches
  • A/C with Wi-Fi smart thermostats and solar ready connections
  • Bamboo flooring
  • Permeable pavers
  • Gutters for rain harvesting
  • Low-maintenance landscaping
  • High efficiency plumbing fixtures
  • Solar-panel ready reflective metal roofs

The home at 4464 SW 11 Street is listed for sale at $625,000. If you would like additional information about the Little Gables Green Homes, or any other green homes in the South Florida area, please contact me at 305.801.3133 or at MelanieinMiami@gmail.com.
