ELM sets the vision for the first major community in the Waterside District in Lakewood Ranch

ELM | Ervin Lovett Miller is the planner, architect and landscape architect for LakeHouse Cove, a new community in the new Waterside District of Lakewood Ranch. The Waterside District marks Lakewood Ranch’s first major development in Sarasota County in two decades and is situated among numerous large existing lakes which define this landscape. 

ELM drew inspiration for the LakeHouse Cove community from the magnificent scale and peaceful setting of these remarkably large bodies of water - and positioned homesites, common areas, and the primary civic and recreational amenity in spectacular settings on the water.

The ELM team was responsible for the refinement of the overall master plan; planning, architecture and landscape architectural design of the major community clubhouse and adjacent amenities; front entry design and signage; and the trails, open space and pocket parks integrated throughout the community.

Construction is currently underway on LakeHouse Cove, with the Lake House and primary amenities expected to open summer of 2018.

Lakewood Ranch is the 31,000-acre award-winning master-planned community in Sarasota and Manatee counties on the West Coast of Florida - and the 4th fastest selling community in the United States. Lakewood Ranch is already home to more than 30,000 residents and features A-rated schools, a hospital, the Sarasota Polo Club, the 75-acre Premier Sports Campus, its own Main Street with theaters, shopping and dining, and more than four million square feet of commercial property.
