Golf Resort to meet LEED Gold Certification

The new standard has begun!

For years Audubon Certification was as far as resorts and condominium developments would go, which is a great start, but with LEED Certifications for all buildings and landscapes, the Wyndansea project in Ucluelet has raised the bar. Click on the above title to see article.

"The Wyndansea Golf Resort will be home to the first eco-luxury global hotel brand to combine the best of environmentally sustainable architecture as part of the master-development's commitment to the environment and sustainable living."

"On the website for Seattle's 1 Hotel, it states the vision for the brand as one that "redefines a new archetype of luxury in hotel and residential living: a one of a kind, sophisticated, modern environment that dares to be the best of everything without sacrificing the greater environment. Committed to protecting and preserving our resources, the creators of 1 believe that one can find sublime experiences in hospitality and in personal lifestyle experiences without diminishing the natural world."

The hotel will be part of the 370-acre master planned resort which also features a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course.

According to Marine Drive Properties, the entire resort has been designed to meet LEED Gold Certification, the rating system that is the benchmark for energy and environmental design."
