Los Valles is an upscale, view-oriented residential community which was originally planned with 100 estate lots around an eighteen-hole golf course. The finances no longer worked for such a plan so Sitescapes was brought in to redesign the site plan. The project had already been 50% graded under the old design; our solution was to integrate this native hillside vegetation into a few of the fairways, as quality habitat and pedestrian open spaces. We also introduced a working vineyard and citrus orchard as a major community identity theme into the other fairways. Through creative site planning, an additional 400 lots were created and more possible active open space was provided, along with the preservation of ridges by limiting the impact of grading.

Like the “body of a Phoenix” the central river-front corridor is the main focal space of this community. It is to serve as the primary social and outdoor exercise space for all residents. Along this corridor is a large public plaza, one rice terrace-inspired amphitheater, tai-chi lawn, two natural water ponds, a viewing bridge and two arrival plazas.
A rain water retention basin and bio-filtration system are designed to work with the two water ponds, allowing for a more environmentally sensitive community.
