Desert Mountain


Location: Scottsdale, Arizona
Client: Desert Mountain Properties

 

DTJ provided design services for this 8,000-acre high desert, luxury golf course community, over a 15-year period. Desert Mountain boasts six Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses within a spectacular setting. DTJ’s design objectives were to create value to the overall community, while enhancing a theme of environmental sensitivity and conservation. The limited impact on the saguaros, washes, and views is a direct result of research, analysis, ingenuity, and careful planning. DTJ’s work at Desert Mountain successfully demonstrates that it is possible to mix residential and thematic design with recreation, and still maintain environmental integrity. DTJ designed entry monumentation and gatehouses, single family detached and attached housing, bridges, water features, and other community elements. Thoughtful and innovative design turned challenging parcels into award- winning communities.
