Project Overview

EDM provided lead planning services to Terra Firma Development Corporation Ltd. for the design and approval of the the upscale lifestyle community of Forest Lakes Country Club. Envisioned as a mixed-use resort community of more than 1,000 acres in the heart of the province, Forest Lakes Country Club gives residents hiking, canoeing, cross country skiing and kayaking literally in their own backyard.

Experts in resort (EDSA, DTJ Design) and golf course design (Nicklaus Design) collaborated with EDM to produce a top caliber 18-hole golf course, and several residential options and facilities consistent with leisure and tourism, and retail and commercial services.

EDM lead the approval process, which required the creation of a new resort zone in the municipal plan and an overall development agreement. Phase 1 is currently under construction, including the 18-hole golf course.
