LEED CERTIFIED DESIGN

The Vineyards of Queen Anne is conceived as a hospitality-based village nestled within an operating vineyard.  Offering a version of sustainable agri-tourism, the project is designed to celebrate the cultural heritage of Queen Anne County and support the unique characteristics of its local economy, especially its foods, farm, and wine.  The village will feature a hotel, spa, retail streets, restaurants, winery, wine-tasting room, pub, garden center, and a large boathouse for community events.

 

Plans for the development and operation of the 130-acre village fully integrate smart planning practices, green development, sustainable operating practices, and public education.

Along with traditional sustainable systems and approaches to development, the master plan includes geothermal wells, solar photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, storm water control, and pervious pavement.  The project is expected to achieve LEED Gold certification.

Unlike most large-scale private property developments, the Vineyards of Queen Anne seeks to foster a connection to the area, create a sense of community, and enrich the quality of life in the area that promotes and sustains the local farming industry, businesses, and craftsmen.
