Development Partners International, LLC
St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands
A steep, rugged, rocky peninsula perched between two crystal blue Caribbean bays – Development Partners International wanted to make this home to private condominiums neighboring Ritz Carlton timeshares. VHB immediately got to work providing solutions to meet the challenging topography, regulatory constraints, and access and circulation using a themed tropical landscape plan to maximize the large program for a small strip of land. At a workshop on island, we talked though the coastal zone management and permitting process, regulatory requirements, and landscaping to deliver a refined site plan, allowing the project to move forward quickly. With approvals in hand, the concept in ready to go.
