Carvel Property Master Plan DevelopmentAugust 4, 2017
The Carvel Property is a 2,220-acre golf, second home, and pre-retirement community. Chazen provided civil, environmental and geotechnical engineering services as well as wetlands and hydrogeological evaluations. The property is a master planned community complex incorporating recreational amenities, community facilities and a range of residential housing types designed, developed, and operated with sensitivity to environmental resources and keeping with the character of the area and local community.
The previous Carvel Golf Course was redesigned and expanded into 27-holes and accompanied by new golf clubhouse facilities. Other amenities included a Homeowner’s Clubhouse with spa facilities, swimming, tennis, field sports, and a health and fitness center; a lakefront activity area complete with picnic areas, fishing and non-motorized boating opportunities; and extensive nature trails. A variety of housing configurations were created to the various lifestyles with architectural themes compatible with the natural setting of the site and consistent with the character of the local communities. Services also included on-site central water and sewer system, drainage facilities and extensive natural resource conservation, protection, and enhancement programs.
