Project Description: The Ritz-Carlton Resort is a 105-acre mixed use development with the goal of creating a world class resort with associated residential living and retail amenities.

The project is uniquely complex in both program and context. The tightly integrated and highly detailed program requires a high level of coordination between the multiple design firms, with each parcel dependent upon its neighbors. The site context, which includes substantial offsite hydrology issues, significant roadway and utility improvements, and sensitive landscape enhancements and buffering, required a high level of detailed design during the initial planning effort.

CVL coordinated all site development aspects of the project during the master planning stage. Burton Studio led subsequent site design efforts and worked with CVL to implement the master plan’s objectives.
