ULI Oklahoma Trip: Carlton Landing
Carlton Landing is a sustainable community complete with amenities and features that enhance its livability. It features a town center composed of shops, restaurants, live/work housing, and a generous park overlooking the lake. There is also a mix of condominiums, townhouses, and cottages. Further from the town center are houses and larger estates nestled on larger lots. Civic amenities, such as a middle school, a church, and a community pool with clubhouse are included. A large area for agriculture is reserved for residents of the community to grow their own food. That is coupled with a farmers’ market facility for management, processing, and the sale of produce.
In addition to the town center, Carlton Landing has three distinct neighborhoods. The first, which features large greens, is located on the entrance road. The second is concentrated around the agricultural fields and farmers’ market. The third neighborhood, located on the western side of the property, is oriented amphitheater-style around an existing pond. The island on the eastern side features equestrian trails, a marina facility, and dormitories for summer camps. The property will have its own sewer treatment plant. Carlton Landing will feature Light Imprint, an advanced rainwater mitigation technique. The design tools will highlight and celebrate rainwater in the parks, streets, lots, and alongside buildings. Light Imprint will allow kids and adults to experience rain playfully while saving infrastructure costs and making Carlton Landing more affordable.
