“At Taurus, we believe we must consider the impact of our actions upon future generations, particularly in the context of a product as durable as real estate. Being sustainable – taking an environmentally, socially and economically responsible approach to development – is our defining principle. To us, sustainability is not a word we take lightly. While many people talk about sustainability, not enough of the words have been transformed into meaningful actions. Our hope and plan is to present Whisper Valley as the truest reflection of our values.”
– Chairman, Lorenz Reibling
