This community master plan for the area of Nayarit, Mexico has been envisioned as a high-end resort and residential community destination in the Riviera Nayarit. Single family and attached residences, hotels and beach clubs, wellness facilities and other amenities were thoughtfully implemented within the site, connecting the project to the unique, existing landscape. This project will serve as an example of taking a wholistic approach to master planning and land development, respecting the land and culture it rests in.

the PROCESS

The planning process began through site analysis to better understand how the proposed land uses would best fit the site. The master plan follows the existing topography of the site, causing the least impact possible to the existing natural resources while still taking advantage of the site's opportunities and beauty.
