The plan offers two different variations – a higher and a lower density - ranging from 720 to 1154 units. Both occupy the same basic footprint, respectful of the beauty and ecology of the site and a model of sustainable best practices. The plan is flexible, based on a pattern of “villages” and can be modified over time, as the resort grows. Within the context of this plan, however, no project will exceed the bearing capacity of the site and we have provided a lexicon of options for achieving expanded sustainability as well as analysis of other projects that achieve model levels of environmental autonomy. Most of all we seek to preserve and enhance the natural and artificial beauty of the place.
