This dense residential project on an irregular site of approximately 35 acres was a planning challenge. For reasons of cost, the height of all the blocks, except one, was restricted to fourteen stories, further accentuating the dense feeling. The plan is a court-yard oriented residential block, zig-zagging to fit the profile of the site. The buildings are elegant stucco buildings with generous balconies attached to each of the approximate 2,300 apartments. There is a three-level underground parking garage, and a large club has been designed in one of the larger courtyards.
Overlaid by a sequence of sheltering, living and residential terraces that are articulated by their characteristic sky-sighted balconies, the Great Park stretches across its vast spread of green enclaves and enclosures. Four thematic Greens – accommodating play, relaxation, social activity and sports – are defined by the residences. A system of shaded walks and pathways joins courts, lobbies and green spaces with the surrounding lawns and the club. The club’s pool complex and party areas open to two of the adjacent green spaces, offering additional capacity for special events, when needed.
