The Carlisle Development Group announced the opening of phases I and II for Tallman Pines, a 200-apartment affordable housing development in Deerfield Beach.
“Tallman Pines is a uniquely successful development that has increased local property values, is providing needed affordable housing to the residents of Broward County, and has pioneered as one of Florida’s first LEED-certified, green properties,” said Matt Greer, CEO of Coral Gables, Fla.-based Carlisle Development Group, in a press statement.
The development’s green features include the use of low-VOC paints, adhesives, and carpets; water-conserving plumbing fixtures; the use of recycled materials; landscaping utilizing native plants; and a photovoltaic system generating power for the community’s clubhouse.
All 200 apartments at Tallman Pines are designated for low- and very-low income residents, and at least 10% of the 42 single-family homes will be sold to individuals at 80% Area Median Income.
Tallman Pines features Caroma Dual Flush Toilets and ecoTap high efficiency faucets and shower systems, which will save the project thousands of gallons of water per month. According to Alterna President Nick Gunia, “The plumbing fixtures in Tallman Pines are likely the most efficient in the entire State of Florida for a multifamily project.
