Orange Park, Fla. (July, 2007) – At last week’s Southeast Building Conference (SEBC) in Orlando, East West Partners received an Aurora Award, a Grand Award and a Grand Special Judges Award (one of the highest honors presented) for landscape design/pool design at its Eagle Landing community. Basham Lucas provided the architectural designs and landscape plans.
Affiliated with the Florida Association of Homebuilders and the SEBC, the prestigious Aurora Awards are presented annually
to builders, developers, architects, planners, interior merchandisers and landscape architects actively involved in
developments in a 12-state southeast region for building and design excellence.
Aurora Award judge Barry Glantz, AIA said, “This project is a lesson that all developers, builders and designers should take a look at. The seamless creation of a development where the designers created a place that warrants the homeowners to come out and become one neighborhood is not often seen and this project does it with perfection.”
Eagle Landing, located in northern Clay County, includes an 18-hole championship Clyde Johnston-designed golf course, a golf clubhouse and its Athletic Center and Tennis Club – a two-story facility with eight Har-Tru courts (and four more planned), a fitness center, full-service locker rooms for ladies and men and a regulation-sized gymnasium with full-sized basketball court with eight adjustable goal heights, an integrated volleyball system an indoor jogging track.
A Resident’s Club includes a Village Store, Café and the Lake House, where residents can rent canoes, fishing rods and other sports and recreational gear. The community also offers a swim park with four pools, a kids club, miniature golf, an outdoor amphitheater with movie screen, numerous neighborhood parks and playgrounds, and scenic hiking/biking trails that stretch along untouched conservation areas.
A full-time recreation staff plans year-round programs, clinics, camps and social activities for kids, teens, seniors and families.
