HJA Design helped put together the design and planning team for this 22 acre remote oceanfront campus located in St. Lucie County, Florida which will be home to one of the largest and most comprehensive addiction treatment facilities in the United States. The tranquil and natural setting will be a major part of the therapy for clients struggling from chemical dependencies and other addictions. The Atlantic features four 4-story buildings designed by the award winning architectural firm of GS4 Studios and is being developed by the international company, The Index Group. The Atlantic’s campus- like design incorporates a contemporary architectural theme and tropical landscape design with the natural character of the site and surrounding area to create a resort atmosphere changing the nature of treatment for it’s clients and their families.

Winemiller Farm Agri- Community:
The Design Studio is designing one of the first true “agri- communities” (agrihoods) in Florida and one of only a handful in the southeast U.S. Winemiller Farm is a 2,000 acre site on the edge of Martin County’s urban boundary with over 900 acres in active farming and nearly three miles along the St. Lucie/ Okeechobee Waterway. Agricultural centered and food- to-table themed residential and mixed- use communities are appearing around the country and to a degree are replacing golf course communities and typical subdivisions as a sustainable and healthy alternative to suburban sprawl and land consumption. The rural village of the project will include 700 homes of various sizes and prices site planned utilizing many traditional neighborhood design principles on just over 300 acres along the waterway, while 800 acres of the present- day farm will be preserved and enhanced. A village center and community farm will provide for small gatherings and larger outdoor events and over 300 acres of native habitat is being preserved and incorporated into the communities 9 miles of trails. Of great significance to the region, which has struggled to improve the St. Lucie and Indian River’s water quality, Hog Creek which bisects the site and empties nearly 5,000 acres of phosphorus and nitrogen rich small farm and ranch land into the St. Lucie canal, will be rerouted and redesigned to capture and clean this water before it is sent to tide.

Clear Lake Estates:
Located on one of the last larger redevelopment sites in the fast evolving City of West Palm Beach this former low- rise apartment site will be transformed into a 400 unit luxury apartment complex for the many millenials moving to this exciting city. Located on the shores of the three hundred acre Clear Lake just outside of downtown the Design Studio team of Todd Troxell and GS-4 Architects envisioned a contemporary apartment complex that captures a wave design in the ten- story buildings as well as the outdoor pool and recreation areas along the lake front.
