SIZE172 units/28 acres
Diamond Pointe is a 28-acre low impact development in Osage Beach, Missouri. The project consists of 172 units of housing in two forms, attached town homes and a six story condominium towers. The master plan evolved to its present state from a much denser all mid-rise proposal which included 300 units of luxury condos and 100 units of independent senior living condos. Through extensive meetings with the community and working with the local planning commission, WSKF developed the final scheme. The entry waterfall feature creates multiple pools along a stream course that follows the main drive to the first pond feature where the water is pumped back to the top and recirculated. The design of the landscape and the layout of the homes and towers is crucial to allow for views to the water from the second tier units and to maintain as many existing trees and ground cover as possible. The land design is intended to create an experience of natural beauty and luxury.
