This is excerpt of Environmental Planning and Designs’ Narrative for this fabulous location:
‘…The Hammock Dunes Community® is a 2,250-acre residential and recreational community located between the Intercoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. EPD led a team of experts in the planning and design of the development within a diverse landscape consisting of beachfronts, waterfronts, marshlands and saltwater lakes. Hammock Dunes’ Master Plan balances environmental sensitivity and development character. Hammock Dunes’ ultimate success is borne from the community’s connection to nature and the wealth of amenities that leverage the value of the unique beach and hammock ecosystems.
EPD was also responsible for roadway and drainage design, common area grading and landscaping, pedestrian-bicycle networks and lighting design. In addition, EPD designed special features including bridge crossings, intersections, fountains, entry monuments and columns and gates. EPD achieved an extremely attractive and environmentally responsible design that preserves existing vegetation, uses a xeriscape-based plant palette of native and naturalized species, conserves water resources and is easily maintained…’
