anderson.jpgMovie and television star, sex symbol and animal-rights advocate Pamela Anderson is returning to the Canadian town she grew up in to help develop a new residential, eco-friendly development. Anderson is teaming up with former professional hockey player Geoff Courtnall to build upon five waterfront-acres previously owned by her grandparents in the town of Ladysmith. The 83-unit, condominium-townhouse development will feature a reduced footprint and several eco-friendly features. From the article,

“‘Environmentally friendly features include a geothermal heat exchange system and pavement that is water-permeable, and a recirculating pond and stream to prevent heavy runoff’, said development manager Peter Laughlin. To minimize the building’s footprint on the site, plans call for one seven-storey condo building, and two four-storey condo blocks. One of those four-storey blocks would be built into the bank on the waterfront, rising to just one level above ground, he said. The townhouses would be built in one- and two-level buildings. ‘The density proposed is less than is permitted under the current zoning’, Laughlin said. ‘We have tried to leave large areas of green space and preserve as many trees as possible.’”

Great to see Pam choosing to include green elements in her development. We’re pretty confident there won’t be any leather furniture included in the final design as well. Perhaps hiring Tobey Maguire as a bouncer would help to ensure this.
