Intelligent Living Corp. Completes First Phase Design, Layout and Budget Estimates for $950K Centerpoint Condos Common Area Automation Project

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - July 12, 2007) - Elgrande International (OTCBB: EGDI) announced today that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Intelligent Living Corp. (ILC), (www.intelligent-living.us), has completed the system design, equipment layouts and budget estimates for audio/video automation and security monitoring of Avenue Communities' Centerpoint development seventh level common area in Tempe, Arizona (www.centerpointaz.com). Installed value of the automation package is estimated to be $950,000.

The common area, encompassing 23,000 square feet, spans the entire seventh level of the twin tower development. The design features a professional demonstration kitchen with full-time resident chef, a wine lounge, a fitness center, as well as studios for yoga and Pilates classes, men's and women's locker rooms complete with steam room and showers, an 'electronic lounge' for gaming, two private state-of-the-art theaters, an in-house spa, a business center and concierge services. Construction is underway and completion is scheduled for mid 2008.

Murat Erbatur, Chief Operating Officer of Elgrande International, commented, "Our involvement with Avenue Communities spans almost two years. During this time we have designed and installed multi-screen audio/video presentation systems to support the condominium sales process and to facilitate presentations in the common area's demonstration kitchen. Automation of the seventh floor is the next step in our ongoing involvement with this market leading project. We have been working closely with the developer and their architect to create an automation package that supports and enhances the multi-use features of this unique and trend-forward facility. The conceptual design, layouts and budget estimates are now complete and, depending on the overall construction schedule, we expect installation to commence early in the new year."

ILC has ongoing contracts and relationships with a number of builders, primarily those developing high-end condominiums and gated communities, and established associations with industry-leading technology partners.
