Bahamas Resort
We are finalizing our team—made up of dedicated, experienced experts in regenerative development—to create an eco-resort in the Bahamas. Not only will the resort use green building techniques and alternative energy sources, it will actively enhance the spirit of its place and its community

Hopewell Township, Mercer County, NJ
A green, single family home will be built on a 3.96-acre lot surrounded by approximately 18 acres of open space. We originally purchased a 22-acre site contiguous to hundreds of acres of parkland comprised by the Hunterdon County Sourland Mountain Nature Preserve (273 acres) and Highfield’s (the former Lindbergh estate with 374.33 acres). We plan to replace the current farm house, which no longer has any utility, with a beautiful green home designed to preserve and enhance the character of the site.

Green Clustered Community
Hopewell Township, Mercer County, NJ
We are in the research and planning stage for a project involving the development of a modest, place-integrated cluster of green homes. We will purchase a 68.29-acre parcel of land contiguous to existing open space and develop the homes as a “farmscape,” utilizing alternative energy and wastewater systems, landscape integration, and other green design techniques to enhance the already strong spirit of the place.

Future Sustainable Village
Hunterdon County, NJ

Rosemont (currently our featured project )
Delaware Township, Hunterdon County, NJ
The restoration-expansion-update of the circa 1860 James Dean House and its six outbuildings. Combining historically-compatible restoration techniques with sensitively integrated green features, the resulting house is a true “new-old” hybrid. Contemporary comfort and convenience in an atmosphere of timeless serenity.

Sourland Mountain Corridor Initiative (SMCI)
The SMCI is an independent land preservation project which focuses on the northeastern portion of the Sourland Mountains. The Sourland Mountain area is a rocky forest and agricultural matrix comprising approximately 30,000 acres located in Hunterdon, Mercer and Somerset Counties. The SMCI focuses on connecting the areas between the Sourland Mountain Preserve, the Hunterdon County Sourland Nature Preserve, and the South Branch River Greenway in Neshanic Station. A series of GIS maps were developed to tell the story of why this area is important to preserve. SMCI acts as liaison between private land owners and various land trusts and municipalities in their efforts to preserve their land and explore alternatives to development. To date, we have been involved in the preservation of over 300 acres in the Sourlands. Our project area consists of approximately 9,000 acres
