Grand Opening Celebration of 'Green Homes' At Positano With Italian Summer Fest September 13th

An Italian Summer Fest is being held this Saturday, September 13 from 11-4 to celebrate the grand opening of Positano, Dublin's premiere master planned community by Braddock & Logan. Visitors will be able to tour the eight fantastic models, enjoy complimentary Italian drinks and gelato, view the '09 models of the Honda Pilot and Hybrid Civic and enter a raffle for a 50" plasma TV and $100 gas cards. Positano provides a choice of two extraordinary neighborhoods planned for upscale living and beautiful detached single-family homes crafted to match. This could be the best chance to live in one of the most convenient locations in the Bay Area. With nearby access to a BART station, shopping, new parks with an abundance of open space and excellent schools, this community is in a class by itself.   The spacious new homes at Cantara and Salerno, designed by leading California architects, reflect a deep appreciation for timeless styles, rich details accented by natural materials and elegant amenities.  Positano also allows you to take a green path with a new home constructed to Build It Green™ and Energy Star® standards. Prices begin from the low $700,000’s for Cantara and from the $800,000’s for Salerno.

For over sixty years, Braddock & Logan has gone beyond industry standards to create homes of lasting value. Now the company is a proud participant of Build it Green , a program that focuses on building livable communities with enhanced energy efficiency and indoor air quality, while conserving resources and water. Build It Green is a non-profit membership organization ( whose mission is to promote energy- and resource-efficient building practices. Braddock and Logan has also earned the ENERGY STAR rating from the government by meeting U. S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines for energy efficiency. Energy Star ( is a joint program of the EPA and the Department of Energy whose mission is to help consumers save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. An Energy Star home from Braddock & Logan is designed to exceed the State’s energy efficiency standards for residential building by at least 15% and may include other features that can make them 20-30% more energy efficient than typical homes. This can add up to significant savings for every Braddock & Logan homeowner.

Reduced energy bills are not the only benefit of "building green.” An environmentally responsible home allows owners to enjoy both pride of ownership and the peace of mind that comes with living in a home created by environmentally friendly building practices.  Here are just a few of the ways Braddock & Logan builds “green” to create homes of true value and their benefits:

  • Use of Thermo-foil barrier in the attic, a reflective insulation that helps reduce heating and cooling bills and can extend the life of heating & cooling systems.
  • A Fresh Air Ventilation System which allows the home to be ventilated with filtered air without opening windows.
  • High efficiency heating, ventilation & AC systems with environmentally responsible refrigerant keeps the home comfortable while guarding against global warming.
  • Use of sealed ducts with R-6 insulation that are pressure-balanced to improve efficiency. 
  • Insulation that is made from 75% recycled materials.
  • All Braddock & Logan Green Communities recycle or reuse 50% or more of waste materials and have low water use landscaping installed in the front yards.
  • For added peace of mind, third-party experts inspect all homes to ensure these quality and environmental standards are in place.

Models are open and ready for touring Monday from 1pm- 6pm and Tues - Sunday from 10am – 6pm. To visit Positano from Hwy 580, exit on Fallon Rd and go north. Follow Fallon Rd and turn right onto Positano Parkway and follow the signs to visit the models at both Cantara & Salerno. For more information, call the sales offices or email

Celebrating 61 years of building homes in the San Francisco Bay Area, Braddock and Logan encourages homebuyers to visit their other communities such as Wind Rose in San Jose, Paulson Lane in Walnut Creek, Tassajara Estates in Danville, Waterstone in Vallejo and Orchard View in the Central Valley town of Ripon. New communities will be opening at Monta Vista Place in San Jose and Millbrae Estates in Millbrae. For more information on current or planned communities call 925-274-2555 or log onto
