Troon Pacific Makes History, Sells San Francisco’s Greenest Ultra Luxury Home For Record Price

San Francisco – Troon Pacific, Inc. developer of environmentally sustainable luxury residences, today announced the sale of its fourth LEED® Platinum home in San Francisco. Listed at $23 million, 2750 Vallejo Street was completed in August 2013 and sold for 21 percent more than similar non-LEED Platinum rated homes.

image0022750 Vallejo is LEED Platinum certified and is an Energy Star rated home that features a number of design attributes that foster a healthy lifestyle. The home produces more than 11 percent of its energy needs through approximately 375 sq. ft. of solar panels mounted across the roof. Overall energy consumption rates are 70 percent less than a typical home of comparable size. The property also includes such eco- and health-friendly features as a 1,700-gallon rainwater harvesting tank, lap pool, conduits for a future electric car-charging station and a MERV 13 ERV (Heat and Humidity Recovery) air filtration system which improves health, reduces costs and creates energy efficiency.

“Discerning homebuyers who seek elegantly designed, high- quality and environmentally friendly homes are moving away from the traditional value-based pricing model to one that’s more cost-based which helps them find homes that encompass the standards they’re looking for,” said Greg Malin, CEO of Troon Pacific. “2750 Vallejo, like every Troon Pacific home, incorporates many unique design and healthy living elements that make living in the home both luxurious and enriching to homeowners’ lives.”

Luxury Residences Get Dose of Healthy Living
Globally, Troon Pacific is one of the only luxury residential developers that incorporate “healthy living” into every detail, a term that describes the thoughtful considerations which impact the architectural design and health-related features of the home: air quality, sound, lighting, safety, amenity and material choices. Design features that offer multiple exercise options as well as healthy food preparation are also incorporated into each home. In an effort to ensure each home is as healthy inside the walls as it is out, Troon Pacific works directly with industry leaders to engineer wall systems, integrate waterproofing techniques and build shells to help reduce the risk of natural forces such as mold, radon, dust, off-gassing and other unseen urban elements.
