Revolution Places' first major resort destination is Cacique, Costa Rica. Located on the northwest coast of Guanacaste, Costa Rica, and spanning 650 acres, the new luxury resort community will integrate some of the industry's most prestigious brands, including Miraval, Exclusive Resorts, a Tom Doak golf course, and an Agassi-Graf Tennis & Fitness Center.
The development of Cacique, Costa Rica will feature highest-end services and amenities with a focus on intelligent, environmentally friendly designs that reduce energy and water demand and take advantage of spatial, wind and solar patterns to maximize natural ventilation, shade and daylight. Cacique, Costa Rica will establish a comprehensive recycling and solid waste management program to neutralize the impact of this development on the surrounding environment. Additionally, Cacique will create on-site treatment facilities to re-use wastewater and will purchase its electrical power for the community from renewable sources. World-class architecture and design will be integrated with indigenous traditions, environment and materials, to create an experience that is second-to-none and authentically Costa Rican.
While visitors to Cacique, Costa Rica, can choose to stay in a hotel property, Revolution Places Development will also offer only 300 for-sale real estate products on the entire 650-acre peninsula. Ownership will be extraordinary and revolutionary. By thoughtfully designing and developing under best-of-breed master architectural and resort community planning standards, the resort will offer the real estate owner and their guests the highest level of personalized services and complete access to resort amenities. The architectural styles of the properties will be both classical and modern (but never edgy). Instead of a gated, manicured conventional development, Cacique, Costa Rica will be a community that offers balance and wellness, centered around a vibrant Village.
The for-sale real estate will include the purchasers' choice of: estate sites, custom and semi-custom whole ownership residences, resort-loft living, and Exclusive Resorts club memberships. While owners and guests of the resort community will create memorable experiences, Revolution Places Group knows that the success of its developments is contingent on the well-being of the local community and the environment. Therefore, Revolution Places has initially invested in the following Costa Rican community programs:
- The donation of 1 million trees to the government-chartered Foundation for the Balance between Conservation and Development
- The donation of hydro-geological studies of the Panama aquifer and watershed
- The donation of computer learning centers to the towns of Filadelfia, Hermosa, Panama and Sardinal
- A $1 million investment to encourage and support the development of local non-profit efforts. Modeled after The Case Foundation's Make it Your Own Awards, Revolution Places will make grants of up to $35,000 to individuals and local organizations that develop initiatives to improve and protect the Costa Rican environment. A panel of judges from the region will be responsible for selecting those who receive the grants. Full details of this program will be revealed in the summer of 2008.
