High End Coastal Master Plan
Location Irvine, California, United States
Client Irvine Community Development Company
Scope Planning, Landscape Architecture
Size 10,000 acres
Newport Coast is a large, “high-end” residential community located on the coastal hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The development includes 3,000 residential units, a luxury hotel and two 18-hole golf courses. SWA was retained to prepare a Landscape Master Plan for the site and to prepare Landscape Guidelines for the first phases of development. The creation of a unified and coherent background landscape evocative of the surrounding natural landscape was critical to the success of the landscape concept. Working closely with the development team, SWA provided design concepts for streetscapes, entry monuments and common open space.
