May 31, 2012 - PRLog -- Argentine-based real estate development firm Costa Partners welcomes the Audubon International Signature Program to Uruguay this week as they start the process of certifying their latest project, Las Cárcavas.  In line with their mission to develop sustainable communities, Costa Partners is committed to embracing green building practices within the Las Cárcavas community, which will be built oceanside near the quaint countryside village of Garzón and the prestigious town of José Ignacio, which attracts celebrities and regional influencers alike.

The site visit taking place this week at Las Cárcavas represents the first Latin American certification for the Audubon International Signature Program.  The Audubon International Signature Program assists hotels, communities and resorts across the globe in creating environmentally sound developments. “We are pleased to be collaborating with industry leaders Costa Partners in introducing the Audubon International Signature Program to Latin America. Through the certification process, Audubon’s goal is to show the world that Las Cárcavas makes solid economic sense, respects the environmental landscape and is socially aware of its role within the community,” expressed Ron Dodson, Audubon International President.  Some of the developments that have received this certification include: Black Forest at Lake James in Morganton, North Carolina, Oitavos Dunes in Portugal, and Bahia Beach Resort and Golf Club in Puerto Rico.

Costa Partners selected the Audubon International Signature Program for its focus on developments that value protecting the natural environment while building eco conscious dwellings.  The master plan for Las Cárcavas includes 22 seaside residences, each with an average size of 3.7 acres of native terrain, a community center with a meditation and yoga studio, and landscaped natural surroundings home to an organic farm for the community.  Costa Partners has been working with the globally recognized environmental consultancy, Three Squares Inc. (TSI), in implementing the overall sustainability plan for the project.   “We are thrilled that Las Cárcavas will be the first Audubon International Signature Program site in Latin America.  This site visit marks the beginning of a new era where pioneers like Costa Partners will drive positive growth rooted in green building strategies,” remarked Jaime Nack, President, Three Squares Inc. who will also be attending this week’s site visit.

During the Audubon International site visit, local community representatives will share valuable information regarding the current focus on nature conservancy in the Garzón region.  The meetings will include members from the Union Vecinal de Punta Ballena and Lagunas del Sauce y Diario, a community organization focused on the protection of lagoons and wetlands in Uruguay. Patricia Cook, spokesperson for the organization and longtime member, explained that “this visit is very exciting for us as it shows that steps are being taken in the right direction by those choosing to develop in this highly-valued part of the country – we value the biodiversity as long time residents and sometimes its hard to share those values with those who recently arrive – it is refreshing to see developers start to integrate social and environmental concerns as part of their goals.”
