Sandwiched right between the Golden Globes, the Grammys and the Oscars is another momentous and glamorous event:  The Charlottesville Planning Commission Awards.  This past Tuesday, taking home the award for the Best Sustainable Development of was none other than Latitude 38.  Or, so we think.

The Planning Commission was really kind in their introduction of Latitude 38 except that they singled out our house Passive House on Lankford Avenue. Only problem, we didn’t build that house.  Bill Jobes did.  Whether they meant to give us the award or we were confused with Bill Jobes, we take it as a compliment.

In all serioiusness, we are tickled by the recognition.  While we are still a pretty small building and development company, we stand committed to infill development in the city and hope to graduate to larger scale projects.  It’s nice to see that people are starting to see our houses around town.

For some reason, if you want to see the glitz of the red carpet, check out the video here.  (Just scroll ahead to the 22 minute mark)  I find it a little rude that the Orchestra cut in the middle of Joey’s acceptance speech.  I mean, she teared up and had a lot of people to thank, but whatya gonna do.
