University Club South Subdivision
SJB Group, LLC was retained by University Club South, LLC to prepare a Master Plan for a 51-acre residential community in St. Gabriel, Louisiana. The University Club South residential community will incorporate 2 sizes of single-family home lots, pedestrian walkways, and a 12-acre park. Minimum lot size for single-family detached homes is approximately 60’ x 140’; however, the majority of the residential lots are much larger in order to preserve the existing trees located along the perimeter of the site.
The master plan was designed around the existing site features including a 3.5-acre lake and large tree groupings containing oaks, hackberries, and pecan trees.
An existing pond was widened slightly in order to control the storm water released from the site. Much of the existing features of the pond were preserved in its natural state in order to maintain the natural beauty of the common green-space areas around the pedestrian path. Improvements within the common green-space areas include a pedestrian walkway and community-wide access to the lake which has a fountain installed.
