Offering a “resort within a resort” experience, Coe & Van Loo Consultants (CVL) provided comprehensive engineering services for Paradise Valley’s Ritz-Carlton master plan to design a new generation of luxury resorts combined with fully-serviced homes and high-end shopping all in one location.  Valued at $2 billion, the Ritz-Carlton Resort and Ritz-Carlton Residences project consists of 105 acres with 200 rooms surrounded by 91 single-level villas and 45 single-family homes.

In addition to providing Survey, Land Planning, and Civil Engineering services, CVL mastered complex water, roadway, and utility challenges to bring forward top-tier amenities for both resort visitors and residence owners. They will enjoy North America’s longest pool on record, world-class spa, modern health and fitness center to name just a few. Additionally, CVL’s landscape architecture design includes a citrus orchard and garden with seasonal produce for on-site restaurants and lush walking paths.  Jan Bracamonte, spokesperson for Five Star Development, describes the villas as “the most sophisticated, full service resort real estate offering in Arizona to date.”

Phoenix has seen five years of increasing demand for luxury hospitality with no increase in supply. Mountain Shadows and Ritz Carlton resorts aim to raise the bar on high-end hospitality developments in Paradise Valley with a boutique and ultra-luxe experience.  Taking trends further will be the coveted single-family residential homes near both properties where families will have access to all the resort amenities, previously reserved for resort clients.  CVL is serving as Civil Engineer and Landscape Architect for all phrases of these five star developments.   Read the full article here.

At CVL, we are just as passionate about helping communities as much as we are about building them.  This year, the avid cyclists in our group participated in the annual 150 mile Bike MS event in Phoenix, helping to raise more funds for people living with Multiple Sclerosis than any other charity.
