Planned Community or Resort
A brief is a short version of a case study.
Serenbe is a 1,000-acre (405 ha) community that broke ground in 2004 in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia, that currently includes 200 homes (single family, multifamily, and live/work units), commercial and arts space, and three restaurants, with eventual plans for a total of 1,200 residents. The development includes a number of food-based amenities, most notably a 25-acre (10 ha) professionally managed organic farm that forms the heart of the community. Serenbe also features an extensive nature trail system, conserves water through landscaping, and naturally treats wastewater for use in irrigation.
