Over 55 Community with championship golf course, 20,000 sf Clubhouse and Fitness Center. Located in Bridgeville, Delaware, this project has just under 800 acres of developable land for up to 1770 units. With 493 units developed to-date, STUDIO39 was hired as the planner/landscape architect to create ideas to drive the project. Our task involved brainstorming concepts and amenities that the project could capitalize on both in the short- and long-run for the project. With the lack of guest accommodations in the area, the concept of adding a hotel to the site and creating a Village Center that could support the blossoming wedding venue market as well as provide needed services to the community was generated. With the old fitness center proposed to be converted to a spa for the hotel, a new fitness center for the community, along with condominiums as a new marketable product, were designed as key elements to the Village Center. Small boutique retail / commercial spaces along with a restaurant help to complete the village concept.
