J.W. MARRIOTT GRAND LAKES RESORT
Deemed one of the most exclusive resort properties in Florida, this project includes both a Ritz Carlton hotel as well as a JW Marriott hotel. Although designed within one resort, the design program was significantly different for each. The Ritz Carlton demanded a much higher level of exclusivity in design with a strong focus on formality and guest privacy, providing amenities that are more grand and classical in design form. In contrast, the JW Marriott was much more focused around creating a unique family-oriented experience with lagoon pools, lazy rivers and active recreation activity areas. Both projects were designed and built simultaneously which allowed for continuity of design theming and the ability for the overall resort to mature equally from a master landscape standpoint. PBD staff were commissioned to provide full time on-site construction administration for this project and managed every aspect from materials acquisition, to rockscape art direction to oversight of all landscape and hardscape construction. In addition, PBD staff have continued to be commissioned on several additional projects since the opening of this project. This project continues to be one of Orlando’s most successful resort projects and has set the precedent for guest expectation in both amenities and quality of detail.
Without question, our commitment is first and foremost to client satisfaction, and that can only be achieved through our client’s success.
