We are honored to announce that the Glass House built by Zahn Development was awarded Outstanding LEED for Homes — Single Family Project at the GalaVerde 2011 by USGBC South Florida.

The second annual USGBC South Florida Chapter’s GalaVerde — The 2011 LEEDership and Green Awards Program Recognized and honored those outstanding projects, inspirational businesses, dedicated individuals, and instrumental Chapter members who are LEEDing the way to a more sustainable built environment in our South Florida community.

The Honorable Manny Diaz (pictured above) former Mayor of the City of Miami and national champion and spokesperson for sustainability and green-building initiatives, served as the Keynote Speaker for GalaVerde 2011. The emcee for the night was Jeff Burnside, award-winning reporter, popular journalist and passionate environmentalist for NBC 6 in Miami.

The GlassHouse is spacious, single level home combining  contemporary architecture with environmentally conscious construction and design. It is a great asset to South Florida, as it is the first single family home in Broward County to have not only achieved the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes Certification, but also the Florida Green Building Coalition Gold Level Certification.
