Bringing Green to Adora Trails

Bringing Green to Adora Trails

Posted 02/03/2017

For anyone who has been a fan of Maracay Homes for the past decade, it should come as no surprise that we always build our homes with the environment in mind, from practicing sustainable building methods to using the latest in green products.

But we’re upping the ante even further in 2017, bringing a new level of environmentally friendly choices to one of the Valley’s most popular neighborhoods, Adora Trails in Gilbert. Once completed, the homes at The Preserve at Adora Trails will be registered with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) with the goal of earning the LEED® Certified designation. With this move, Maracay becomes the only large-scale homebuilder in metro Phoenix building homes to achieve LEED® certification through USGBC, a third-party rating system that verifies compliance across several areas addressing sustainability.

According to the USGBC, LEED® certified homes are designed to use 30 to 60 percent less energy than typical homes, saving residents thousands of dollars down the road. Plus, the homes inside The Preserve will meet the EPA’s Indoor airPLUS specifications and will feature water-efficient fixtures, LED lighting, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, Energy Star® appliances, Wi-Fi enabled, programmable thermostats and much more. Each of the 82 spacious, all-single-story homes located within the neighborhood enclave will also feature fresh architecture and thoughtful layouts that complement the overall design of the homes, which will be value-engineered to reduce energy usage and to produce quantifiable human health and environmental benefits.

And, of course, residents at The Preserve enjoy unfettered access to Adora Trails’ rich amenities, including a club house with a full-sized fitness center, catch-and-release lake, miles of walking trails, a resort-style pool with splash park, an elementary school, and numerous sports courts and recreation fields. Adora Trails is conveniently located near the southeast corner of Riggs Road and Val Vista Drive, offering residents easy access to the Price Road corridor, Tempe and downtown Phoenix, as well as Gilbert’s top-rated schools, major employment hubs, and thriving dining and entertainment district.

Additionally, the homes are Energy Star® certified and include Maracay Homes’ LivingSmart® program for high performance and cost efficiency. For additional information about The Preserve at Adora Trails, please contact Maracay Homes New Home Specialist Pam Meyer at (480) 889-3713, or visit
