Ponce Paradise Master Plan Received an Excellence Award from SARA National
The expansive terrain extends from the Caribbean Sea to the city center. The 821-acre site is flat and has great views of the Ocean and the neighboring natural reserve island of ‘Caja de Muertos’. It is located on a major highway and is immediately visible upon entering or leaving the city of Ponce, sitting between the port and the airport. A key design parameter has been to direct the water to enter the property, thereby rebuilding wetlands, beaches, and creating a world class canal. The wetlands on the Eastern section of the site will remain in its natural state and be placed into a protected conservation according to the Puerto Rico Conservation Easement Law. 180 acres have been set aside for a farm, orchard, and pasture will be dedicated for the harvesting of organic food and play an important element in Ponce Paradise’s wellness concept.
