Building codes in California are already really stringent. Foremost Companies is going well beyond the recommended sustainability measures with the new Terramor in Corona.
Proud Green Home reports that the developer is getting creative to attract buyers to the 961-acre property in Southern California.
The community will have more than 1,400 homes, five miles of trails, and 22 acres of parks. Homes will be terraced into the rising hills of Terramor, and will have views of the Santa Ana Mountains. A nearby freeway will connect residents to Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Bernardino counties.
In terms of green design, the drought-tolerant landscaping will be irrigated with reclaimed water, and old oak trees from a nearby gravel mining operation were relocated into the community.
