It’s an easy, respectful way of life. Our commitment to sustainability touches every detail, like our NAHB-certified green homes, historic parks and our fresh, re-energizing atmosphere. We've preserved nearly 900 acres of open space, slopes and stream beds, and thousands of trees. The result is a more natural habitat for wildlife - and a healthier lifestyle for the people who call it home.
Every detail matters. When planning Briar Chapel, we let the land do the talking. We crafted a community meant to last around these core principles of sustainability.
Start with the land.
We made an effort to preserve the most species-rich areas. Wetlands to preserve water quality. Parks, greenways and forested buffers to conserve plants.
Keeping the green green.
More trees, please.
Re-use of materials.
Walking is good.
The Briar Chapel community is a walkable community, with over 20 miles of trails connecting our neighborhoods, the Briar Club, local parks, ball fields and schools.
