The plan for Carlton Landing was created in 2008 by Andres Duany, a world-renowned town planner known for designing Rosemary Beach. Duany and Grant Humphreys both see the New Urbanism as an answer to the failed experiment of suburban sprawl. The New Urbanism offers a logical process for urban design and development by designing places around people rather than the automobile. Carlton Landing’s master plan creates a place that is supremely safe and walkable. The 3,000-home community includes multiple neighborhoods, an organic farm and farmer’s market, parks and pools, a K-12 school, chapel, retreat/conference center, nature center with wildlife exhibits, walking trails, and a town center with shops, restaurants, and an art gallery. It’s a stunning lakeside sanctuary built for easy living.
