Classic Win-Win: buy a condo and save the planet!

From Kim Miller at the Post's Real Time blog is this:
It’s not unusual for some high-end developments to throw in a few freebies to sweeten the pot, but one West Palm Beach project is taking it to a whole new level.

The Z Palm Beach condominium, which is being built at the corner of Palm Beach Lakes Blvd. and Federal Highway, is offering a complimentary Tesla Model S with each unit. The luxe electric car costs about $71,070, according to the Tesla website.

The unique development will have just eight units starting at $2.3 million. They are expected to be open by the end of the year.
Not quite on the same level, however, our little City of Lake Worth also will have new housing available in the downtown soon. A construction trailer was just delivered to what will be the Lucenté townhomes:
At last, Kennedy Homes, the premier builder of successful communities enriching the lives of South Florida residents, brings its over 50-year-old tradition of quality to Lake Worth, Florida. Lucenté is a distinctive Key West-styled community of 23 architecturally inspired townhomes that celebrate the urban-casual lifestyle of young families, couples and professionals residing in the eclectic city of Lake Worth.
Remember folks, it is estimated 800 people are moving to Florida each and every day: fellow Americans and others from around the globe and they all want a nice place to call home. Both of these projects are east of I-95 in areas that have already been disturbed by human settlement in the past, will use existing infrastructure and help re-populate an urban area near transit alternatives to the automobile.
