Global Website Files

These charming Florida townhomes possess a resilience that belies their quaint appearance. Despite their fresh, verdant façade reminiscent of a blooming daffodil, their structural integrity rivals that of reinforced concrete, a testament to their durability.

Crafted by the innovative Pearl Homes construction company, these townhomes emerged unscathed from the onslaught of both Hurricane Ian and Hurricane Idalia, remaining powered throughout, while neighboring edifices succumbed to extensive damage.

Pearl Homes prides itself on pioneering sustainable living solutions, from ingeniously designed smart homes that generate surplus energy to the creation of energy-efficient rental units aimed at fostering affordable housing. In doing so, they aim to showcase a novel paradigm in habitat construction, one that harmonizes with the environment while offering comfort and security.

The visionary behind Pearl Homes, Marshall Gobuty, previously made his mark in the fashion industry during the 1980s and 1990s with a wildly successful line of women’s private label blue jeans. After selling his fashion empire to a hedge fund and retiring, Gobuty redirected his entrepreneurial zeal towards developing communities of net-positive energy homes. His vision extends beyond mere habitation; it encompasses the cultivation of conscious communities cognizant of their environmental impact and collective footprint.

The homes featured above are part of the Hunter’s Point development, comprising 86 units situated in Cortez, Florida. Thirty of these units, already completed and occupied, boast a ‘Platinum’ rating from Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), affirming their exceptional efficiency. Hunter’s Point stands as the inaugural net-zero, single-family modern housing development worldwide, a testament to Pearl Homes’ commitment to sustainable urbanization.

In addition to residential units, Hunter’s Point incorporates resort amenities, hotel accommodations, and commercial spaces, all set against the picturesque backdrop of the Cortez coastline. However, the luxury comes at a price, with a 1,678 square foot unit commanding a hefty $1.5 million investment.

Pearl Homes’ apartment complex, known as The Met, offers one and two-bedroom units priced between $1,700 and $2,000 in Bradenton, Florida. Situated within the vibrant Village of The Arts, residents enjoy convenient access to entertainment, dining, and retail options, as well as proximity to the Gulf coast.

Constructed with environmentally-friendly materials and manufacturing processes, The Met prioritizes sustainability and occupant well-being. These meticulously designed apartments surpass standard energy efficiency requirements by 30%, promising reduced utility expenses for residents.

Furthermore, Bradenton residents have access to The EPIC, a collection of apartments priced at approximately 40% lower than The Met. Designed to accommodate essential workers such as educators, first responders, and healthcare professionals, The EPIC emphasizes building practices and technologies that promote healthier lifestyles.
