A Gauteng developer is busy developing energy efficient residential developments in Honeydew Manor on the West Rand.

"Parkview and Westwood will cut energy requirements by 65% and reduce the homeowners' electricity bill by 65%," says Jan Roode, marketing director for Calgro M3 Marketing.

"Standard features of these new developments include solar powered geysers, gas appliances, insulated floors and ceilings and energy efficient lighting. Apart from the reduction in energy usage Calgro M3 have employed other environmentally friendly practices. Included in each unit is a three-year subscription with a recycling company providing residents with recycling bins and the collection of refuse."

Parkview and Westwood, both freehold gated communities, overlook Eagle Canyon and have easy access to Clearwater Mall and Northgate, and Trinity School. Natural attractions close by include the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens and the Cradle of Humankind.

Parkview consists of 45 units and buyers can choose from eleven different unit plans. Standard finishes includes stainless steel appliances, granite tops, a built-in braai and fire place, and automated garages.

Westwood consists of 40 units and buyers have a choice from nine unit plans, with standard finishes also including stainless steel appliances, granite tops, a built-in braai and fire place, and automated garages.

Sizes of the homes range from 130sq m to 250sq m, with prices starting from R1,3m.

"Owners have the option of different finishes, but they have the choice of making changes to the design of their units," Roode says.

Registration is expected around October 2008, with occupation six months from date of registration.
