Moorings Park Grande Lake names landscape architect


Outside Productions International has been named the landscape architect for Moorings Park Grande Lake, a new life plan community being developed through a partnership between Moorings Park and luxury custom homebuilder and developer London Bay Homes.

Landscape architect Patrick Trefz, ASLA, RLA, founded the landscape and architectural design firm in May 2000. During the past 18 years, Outside Productions has served Southwest Florida as well as international clients from around the world including Canada, China, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Mexico and Russia, to name a few.

Trefz is a Florida native who grew up in the Tampa Bay area and is a graduate of the University of Florida, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture.

At Moorings Park Grande Lake, Trefz and members of his staff will be working closely with the community’s design team to enhance the land plan and bring exceptional landscape design to the project.

On 55 acres in the heart of Naples, Moorings Park Grande Lake will combine one-of-a-kind vistas of lakes and championship golf with luxury homes and health care.

“Future residents will be attracted to its natural beauty, classic design and total commitment to enabling them to live longer, healthier and happier lives,” stated Daniel Lavender, CEO of Moorings Park Institute Inc.

“For nearly three decades, the brand promise of ‘Private Label Living’ has reflected our commitment to building and developing the finest luxury homes in Southwest Florida,” said Mark Wilson, president of London Bay Homes. “It’s an honor for us to now extend our philosophy of choice in design to the area’s newest community.”

Moorings Park Grande Lake will consist of luxurious midrise residences including spacious penthouses. Prices start at $1.4 million with 70 percent refundable entrance fees.

 The community is a pet-friendly campus and has been designed to take advantage of the views of a 28-acre lake and the picturesque golf course beyond.

The physical environment presents an innovative and resort-style blueprint that provides for seamless physical and visual experiences. It also maximizes the beauty and appeal of waterfront living combined with high-end materials and services.

Consistent with other Moorings Park campuses, Moorings Park Grande Lake will include common areas that promote social interaction, which will allow and encourage residents to choose from indoor and outdoor activities year-round.

A few of the planned outdoor activities or amenities include a yoga pavilion, walking paths, lakeside parklettes with boardwalks, gardens, fire pits and overlooks; and several bird-watching posts. The areas for social gatherings were designed so family members and friends of residents could join in the various activities, which could include events such as outdoor concerts.

The clubhouse, as planned, will feature casual and fine dining venues, a private dining room, ballroom, art studio, wellness center, state-of-the-art fitness center, strength and cardio area, salon and spa, and a resort-style pool with poolside cabanas.

Also in the clubhouse will be The Center for Healthy Living. The center is home to rehabilitation services, as well as the Care 360 concierge health care program, which was developed in partnership with NCH Healthcare System.

The Care 360 program offers a higher level of personalized primary care. Services are available to residents of Moorings Park with no additional fees, other than typical co-pays. The Care 360 concierge physicians are accessible by appointment, plus 24/7 access via phone, text or email.

Should the need arise, Moorings Park Grande Lake provides its residents world-class assisted living and memory care in existing centers of excellence, at no additional cost.
