37 premium homes expected to earn coveted LEED Certified designation
MESA, Ariz. (Jan. 18, 2018) – Maracay Homes will celebrate the grand opening of The Vista at Granite Crossing on Saturday, Feb. 3. The much-anticipated 37-home enclave in east Mesa is garnering excitement for it prime location near the edge of the Superstition Mountains, and for its commitment to innovative and sustainable design.
Every home at The Vista at Granite Crossing will be registered with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a third-party rating system that verifies compliance across several areas addressing sustainability, with the goal of earning the LEED® Certified designation. Designed to use 30–50 percent less energy than typical homes, each home will meet the EPA’s Indoor airPLUS specifications, and will feature water-efficient fixtures, LED lighting, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, Energy Star® appliances, tankless water heaters and Wi-Fi enabled, programmable thermostats.
“The completion of The Vista at Granite Crossing further cements Maracay Homes as Arizona’s leading, large-scale green homebuilder,” said Maracay Homes President Andy Warren. “If you look at the numbers for just the past year, we have brought to market more than 300 homes in the Valley that will meet the USGBC’s strict guidelines for the LEED Certified designation. No other large builder in Arizona is doing what we’re doing at this level, and that’s exciting.”
The grand opening event will include a neighborhood gathering from 12–3 p.m., featuring a barbecue lunch and refreshments. Potential homebuyers are encouraged to attend the event, where they will have a chance to meet Maracay’s New Home Advisors, tour the new, beautifully-appointed model home and RV garage, and learn more about the neighborhood.
