FishHawk Ranch Lake House

LEED Silver

3,246 sq/ft.  $1,721,500

The FishHawk Ranch Lake House recently received the prestigious 2014 Grand Aurora Award from the Southeast Builders Conference. The FishHawk Ranch community is owned in a joint venture partnership between North America Sekisui House, LLC (NASH), the US business unit and full subsidiary of Sekisui House, Ltd, Japan’s largest homebuilder and leading diversified developer, and Newland Real Estate Group, LLC, whose development business, Newland Communities, is the master developer of the community. It is one of 30 assets the NASH-Newland partnership manages together, in 11 states across the US.
     Recognized by the Aurora Award panel for its unique design and planning, the Lake House was built to serve as an anchor for FishHawk Ranch’s newest neighborhood. FishHawk Ranch is known for its green building initiatives and the natural outdoor connections it provides residents, and the Lake House is a prime example of this initiative.
      “The Lake House is unlike any other gathering place in FishHawk Ranch,” said Pam Parisi, regional marketing director for Newland Communities. “Each building was carefully placed within the oak canopies, to preserve the trees and natural setting.  It’s the perfect place for residents to connect with nature and each other.  This location in the community gave us a special opportunity to be very intentional about the integration of nature and the built environment.”
      The Lake House is comprised of three separate buildings connected by boardwalks; a main clubhouse, a screened game room and a state-of-the-art cardio room. Spanning 5,466 sq. ft., it was built with local and sustainable materials where possible to complement its natural surroundings, and Newland Communities is currently pursuing a LEED Silver certification for the Lake House.
      The clubhouse includes a gathering room, catering kitchen, 12-seat dining table and fireside lounge for intimate gatherings or larger celebrations with family and friends. A short stroll along the boardwalk leads to a screened-in game room with ping pong, foosball and billiards. And a separate cardio room offers treadmills, elliptical machines, free weights, a stretching area and even a special play room for kids.
      The 35th Annual Aurora Awards is sponsored by the Florida Home Builders Association and recognizes outstanding builders, planners, architects, developers, designers and interior merchandisers. FishHawk Ranch remains the top-selling new home community in the Tampa market, according to real estate market research firm, MetroStudy.

The Florida Center for Child and Family Development is similar to other non-profit organizations by depending on charitable funds for operation. Monetary budget limitations were considered for building the facility including cost savings in the maintenance of the facility for years to come. The general public perception of building Green is the cost is more than a non-Green building. Two Trails believes building Green is achievable on all budgets, being specifically design for affordable housing and buildings. The building will benefit in the immediate reduced operational costs and benefit from the renewable energy saving features for future years. A perfect example that building Green is economical for all budgets is The Florida Center for Child and Family Development, which is a 10,000 square foot building.

Water saving plumbing fixtures reduced potable water use consumption by 59%. Energy savings were achieved with a HVAC system with a 16 SEER and R410A refrigerant. The windows are a low E insulated glass, with spectrally selective window tint. The sealed attic area used a R-40 spray foam insulation all influencing the total of a 20% reduction in energy usage.
