KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- HGTV will build its fourth HGTV Green Home in Stapleton, Denver, Colorado's eco-progressive community created on the site of a former airport in Denver. Stapleton is reusing/recycling 4,700 acres of land and reconnecting it to Denver's urban fabric. Over the past decade the community has emerged as one of the country's most ambitious examples of sustainable development. The 2,400-square-foot, custom-built "green" home being built there will be given away as part of the HGTV Green Home grand prize package next spring. A video and information about the location of the home is available at HGTV.com/greenhome.
"The HGTV Green Home gives us an opportunity to display the latest products and highlight the newest practices for the ever-evolving standards of sustainable living," said Jack Thomasson, HGTV House Planner. "The combination of a spectacular eco-healthy home design, built in a vibrant community, will undoubtedly make this our most dynamic HGTV Green Home ever."
The HGTV Green Home will feature open spaces that flow together to create an interactive environment. The home's exterior mix of hipped and cantilevered roof forms gives a feel of a winged structure, recalling the site's airport past. By not replicating a traditional house style, the HGTV Green Home of 2011 looks to the future with a modern prairie look and does not try to reproduce the past. Constructed by Infinity Home Collection of Denver, it will feature construction and design elements that are known to contribute to an energy efficient, cleaner and healthier living environment.
Viewers can enter for a chance to win the HGTV Green Home Giveaway grand prize package during the entry period from April 14 – June 2, 2011.
"We're honored that HGTV has selected the Infinity for the construction of its 2011 HGTV Green Home," said David Steinke, general manager, Infinity Home Collection. "We love building smart homes for smart people and to us, building green is practically second nature. It gives us great pleasure to have our work featured as part of this year's HGTV Green Home Giveaway."
"In Stapleton, we've worked to create a community that is founded on sustainability," said Denise Gammon, Senior Vice President of Development for Forest City Stapleton, the master developer of the Stapleton Community. "We'll be delighted to welcome the lucky winner of the Green Home Giveaway to the neighborhood."
