Asani is in the news for their Bainbridge Island based project Grow Community., and we’re proud that several members of the development team are BGI Alumni. SMB Nation writes inĀ Window into the New: Innovative Design Using Technology Shapes Grow Community on Bainbridge Island For Ultra-Cool Sustainable Living how they are “leading the way in the concept of attractive, affordable, practical solutions for sustainable living in the United States.” A few highlights of the community include:

  • The first endorsed One Planet Community to build residential homes in the United States, Grow Community is comprised of for sale and rental homes that allow residents the opportunity to live within the resources of our planet.
  • Grow Community will be the largest planned solar-ready neighborhood in Washington State.
  • Taking sustainable development beyond LEED, Grow Community has net zero energy homes, a car share program, and community gardens.
