Families in this 640-acre communitybuilt around the existing Springfield Golf course enjoy manylifestyle choices such as grabbing some food or flowers atthe preserved fruit stand and orchard at the front of thecommunity. Here we kept the historic charm of the oldsouthern roadside market for the residents to enjoy. Wealso re-designed the golf pro shop and Cart barn buildingsto accommodate the new residence. Also, next to the proshop is a planned cluster of townhomes that overlook thedriving range.Nearly half the community is dedicated to open space,including walking trails, sidewalks and parks.

  6. 6. Myers Park City Homes was a highly successful planned infill projectplacing duplex units in and around 200 yr old willow oak trees.Driveways were planned carefully as well as guest parking spacesso as not to effect the trees root systems. The only double GrandAward winner this year, the Simonini Builders project, Myers Park CityHomes in Charlotte, N.C., was a hit with neighbors who weregrateful to rid their community of the dirt yards and shabby rentalhousing that once occupied the eight-acre site. The prime locationis near a hospital and on the edge of Myers Park, one of the citysbest neighborhoods. Although it was already zoned for duplexes, anold deed restriction only allowed for a single front door to the street.So architect Sam Greeson designed this high-density product tolook like single-family homes. Articulated with historical accuracy,the stately brick colonials with white columns and black shutterscomplement the surrounding neighborhood. Simonini and plannersalso preserved 63 mature willow oaks on the site. "The architecture isexactly what the homeowners association was looking for and whatthe zoning would allow," says builder Alan Simonini. "Everyone I runinto compliments us on how its improved the neighborhood."

The country club lifestyle, a full-time activities director and The Pointsmany amenities offer year-around enjoyment to residents of every age.Life here revolves around the water. More than 500 families have already made theirhomes along the 18 miles of shoreline. Most residents enjoy beautiful views of thewater from their homes, while many others are nestled along the fairways of the golfcourse. More than two-thirds of the holes of this Greg Norman-designed course playalong or over the lake. And, Our Lake Club has become one of the most sought-afterdestinations in the region for wedding receptions and corporate gatherings. It canaccommodate seated gatherings of 300 people in the spectacular waterfront setting.
  8. 8. Cutter Bay, located in the center of North Carolinas famed Inner Banks,is a boating, sailing and yachting paradise. Just a short drive outsideHistoric New Bern, NC, Cutter Bay boasts 891 home sites surrounded bywater. The property itself is a peninsula nestled between Trent Creekand the Bay River that flows directly into the Pamlico Sound, an areaknown for its great boating waters.The centerpiece of this 577 acre planned gated community is themagnificent 50-acre Harbour Lake. This lake serves as the backdrop formany of the communitys home sites as well as the inland marina,harbor, unique boat launch and boatlift.The amenity peninsula, which sits along the waterfront of HarbourLake, is the perfect location for Cutter Bays magnificent clubhouse andcenter stage for marketing to passing traffic. The marina and amenityisland was strategically placed up front in areas that would not be thebest home site locations being so close to the hustle and bustle of NC55as well as to lure buyers into the community with long dramatic viewsacross the water to the raised coastal style club. This island was designto offer a resort-style swimming pool, fitness center, tennis/sport court,basketball and sand volleyball court and a childrens playscape area.The innovative boat lift system which we designed was certain to be thefirst of its kind in that boats were lifted from the internal marina with asea lift and driven across the road and placed in the Bay River. This wassure to be the softest impact on mother nature and its naturalwaterways. The army corp of engineers and Coastal Area ManagementAssociation considered this to be very much a pioneering effort in thatthe inland marina never touches the Bay River waterway. This allowedthe developer to pursue a 1 year minor CAMA permit as opposed to a 3yr major CAMA Permit for inland cut marina design layouts. Stormwater and grey water is treated on site and planned withirrigation needs In mind.
  9. 9. The master planning and site design of The Sanctuary, an awardwinning, sustainable, lakefront community was the first of its kind inthe Charlotte Region. This project involved the close integration ofsensitive land planning, and sustainable design principles fromshoreline/watershed protection to Green building design for theclub facilities. The John James Audubon Lodge was the firstrecreational building in North Carolina and the first building inCharlotte to earn LEED certification in 2006. Audubon Internationalawarded the project the worlds first Three Diamond Award in 2004.and it was recently received multiple accolades in the local designand business community including: Charlotte Business Journal’sGreen Award for “Green Land Development”, Best Eco-FriendlyDevelopment- Charlotte Magazine and Mecklenburg County’s“Sustainable Development Award”. Only 20 percent of the landin the Sanctuary will be touched, resulting in wooded lots andwaterfront properties that average 5 acres, and which range fromjust over 2 acres to more than 13 acres. Fewer than 200 families willmake this private community home. The commitment to protect this1,300-acre nature reserve community affords residents both landand water recreation in tranquil surroundings. The nature trails windfor more than 20 miles through the natural areas near shore.
