Lauter Development Group, Hyde Park, New York
Lauter Development Company LLC acquired a 156-acre wooded parcel located in historic Hyde Park, New York and proposed an new a mixed-use community called The Club at Hyde Park. The project combines retirement housing with attractions not currently found in the Town of Hyde Park, such as a large inn and spa and an outdoor theater for plays and musical performances.
Saratoga Associates developed a Master Plan for The Club that organizes the project around the concept of an age-targeted active adult community linked to local colleges and programs for life-long learning.
The project includes over 830,000 gsf of built space, approximately half residential and half non-residential. Town House, Villa, and Estate style housing employs an architectural vocabulary reflective of the local vernacular as well as contextual natural elements. The facilities meander through the wooded site, allowing for appreciation of the surrounding wetland ecosystem that is preserved and protected by wetland buffers and mitigation plans. Additionally, a linkage to the Roosevelt Farm Lane Trail connects both residents and visitors to the surrounding region.
