The Costa Dorada concept is simple…to create a thoughtfully designed and sustainable community that is integrally linked to the land and its people. Costa Dorada intends to positively enhance the lifestyle of its visitors and residents by uniquely blending social, environmental, and financial opportunities.
The Marbella Group has assembled an exceptional team whose collective experience in the fields of planning, sustainable building, hospitality, ecotourism, alternative energy, wellness and health, and environmental education will guide the formal planning process and development of the Project.
Costa Dorada will be carefully built-out over many years and should be viewed as a “community of communities”, an overall Costa Dorada master plan featuring smaller, bou- tique developments within the Project that will be introduced thoughtfully and somewhat organically over time.
The Project is being planned using a “best practices” approach that will engage leading practitioners and consultants in all the key development fields. It will build upon the creative and forward thinking applications from award winning projects in Central and North America that employ the use of sustainable practices.
Equally important to the quality of the built environment will be the economic and social considerations for the town of Marbella and the Guanacaste region. Local employment opportunities created by Costa Dorada will have a profound impact on the economic well-being of the townspeople and the region by providing job training and financial support for local entrepreneurs, as well as support for indigenous cultural activities including music, dance and art. Additionally, international property buyers often settle in smaller towns and villages such as Marbella and contribute heavily in terms of financing and personal involvement with the needs of the community.
The commercial component of Costa Dorada will be a public walking village. In summary, by employing a holistic approach to its design and development, Costa Dorada has the potential to become an iconic Project, recognized for its sustainable and financial success.
