WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENTS A model design for a sustainable community Pearl Homes has received its final approval from the Manatee County Commissioners to move forward with Hunters Point Resort & Marina in Cortez, Florida’s oldest fishing village. The project will offer residents and visitors a coastal lifestyle, just two minutes from the Gulf of Mexico on a private canal that offers immediate Gulf access. The development will be a modern interpretation of Florida’s traditional ‘cracker cottage’ style of the early 20 th century highlighting the village’s historic elements while integrating advanced environmental technology to reduce net energy use and drive down utility costs to virtually zero. It will feature a private marina with 48 boat slips, a solar powered water taxi for trips to and from the local beach, a bistro, shopping deck with locally owned boutiques, an energy- and water-efficient amenity centre, community garden and swimming pool. The marina slips will be strategically designed to optimise thoroughfare space for residents and guests and will provide access to and help coordinate parasailing, sunset cruises, guided and solo snorkelling, diving and fishing charters. The 86 residences built by Pearl Homes will have spectacular rooftop and exterior decks. An additional 62 lodge-style properties are designed for extended stay rental and will feature 800ft² (74m²) of interior living space, with waterfront porches featuring panoramic bay views. Every Hunters Point property comes with a new electric-powered Tesla vehicle to further Pearl Homes’ commitment to the environment and energy efficiency. Properties have been designed for natural breezes to cool and ventilate each residence and every home will have solar power with battery storage. All will be constructed to meet LEED Platinum green criteria. Every development has its objectors, and local residents concerned about the impact on the canal that runs through the site and the effect the development could have on existing waterfront landowners have received a public record declaration from Pearl Homes founder and principal Marshall Gobuty. The declaration states that the company does not intend to change any of the historic uses of the canal, prohibit anyone from installing a properly permitted dock or in any way limit navigation on the canal. “We want to show what can be done when you work with the right energy and technology leaders from around the world, while also respecting the sensitivities of a community and the rich history it has,” Gobuty said. “Hunters Point will be the model community for sustainable design across the country,” he added. - May/June 2018 23
