GRAND AWARD Masterplan Community of the Year MIRALON Palm Springs, CA Developer: Freehold Communities Architect/Designer: Robert Hidey Architects Landscape Design: C2 Collaborative Civil Engineer: MSA Consulting Photographer: Chet Frolich The 309-acre Miralon master plan in Palm Springs, California, was chosen for Master Plan Community of the Year because of its creative approach to land reuse. Started more than a decade ago but never realized, the developer chose to replace a previously designed golf course with 7,000 California olive trees, 7 miles of trails, and a mix of community gardens, lakes, and dog parks. The judges appreciated the whole package, including the community's site plan, the modern agrihood amenities, and the residential product offerings. It was truly a fan favorite and also garnered other Gold Nugget grands in other categories as well. builder product
