JHS was retained by Drake Development Company to design their 370 unit mixed–use Condominium Resort named Hammock Beach in the fall of 2000. This facility is located in Palm Coast Florida on the 18th green of a Jack Nicklaus golf course overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and was completed in the fall of 2007.
JHS worked closely with the client in designing the resort keeping user needs and costs in mind. The resort was designed with heights of six to twelve levels of three and four bedroom units over two levels of parking. This mixed-use resort took on a unique design by creating 2 levels of parking with retail spa, fitness and back of house amenities below the raised habitable plaza areas. The facility incorporated 900 beds, a conference facility, multiple dining facilities, and an indoor and outdoor pool amenity complex. The exterior raised plazas incorporated planters for privacy to the plaza units, grass areas, tile walk ways, grill and bar with bathrooms and pool amenities all over two levels of parking. With this unique plaza design and heavy landscaping at the street level we were able to create a pleasing view for all of the residences over the plaza and to the ocean. The total cost of construction was $125,000,000.00.
