If you build it, they will come....

A large group of architects and members from the Cape Fear Green Building Alliance and the Wilmington American Institute of Architects joined us at Tonbo Meadow for a 'lunch and learn' event a few weeks back.  (there has been a great deal of progress since then, so keep checking in for more progress updates)

Discussions covered the low-impact site design, energy efficiency, sustainability, as well as the building materials/techniques used at Tonbo Meadow. As Wilmington's first true low-impact development, we are proud to showcase our hard work and passion for minimizing our impact on the land. Here are a few more photos from Wilmington AIA featuring the event if you want to check them out!
