C2 Collaborative Set to Transform Failed Palm Springs Golf Course Into Chic Modern "Agrihood"

·3-min read

Coachella Valley Residents Will Soon be Able to Live Within a Working Olive Orchard at Miralon Palm Springs

C2 Collaborative, an internationally acclaimed Orange County, Calif.-based landscape architecture design firm, is pleased to announce the upcoming opening of Miralon Palm Springs this summer 2021. C2 Collaborative was retained by its client, Freehold Communities, as the master landscape architect tasked with transforming a failed golf course project into a thriving agrihood community situated within a working olive tree farm.

The 309-acre agrihood will be one of the largest in the United States and will offer 1,150 residences amid working olive and citrus groves, community gardens and walking trails. Built atop of a never played-on abandoned 18-hole golf course, the community emphasizes resort-style living alongside sustainable open space.

"Miralon is a bit of a phoenix rising from the ashes in the Coachella Valley," said Paul Haden, president at C2 Collaborative. "After a golf course project failed in 2007, its streets, roads and golf courses sat untouched until we were tasked with reimagining this neglected community into a sustainable, modern agrihood. The reuse of this land was approached with a water- and energy-conservation first vision. The former golf course’s lakes are now used for irrigation and the orchards will act as a windbreak creating shade opportunities that slow evaporation from the lakes – every detail was considered to ensure a habitat-sensitive approach."

To bring this vision to life, C2 Collaborative conducted an in-depth water analysis to ensure the new olive grove would not use more water than the former golf course did. The farm concept drove the rest of the design elements including Miralon’s recreational center, street scenes, social spaces, trails, gardens, dog parks, desert planting and more.

After 18 months of planning and approvals, construction began with the exterior landscape roads in April 2017, followed by walls and internal streets. The clubhouse and other amenities were next, with C2 Collaborative’s team of highly skilled landscape design architects spending countless hours during the construction phase to ensure plan specifications were met and installed accurately.

Residential development is currently underway with three different homebuilders who will erect over 1,000 modernist-inspired residences over the next year. Operationally, Miralon will open this summer 2021, with the club, fitness center, yoga studio, hub, café, pools and dog parks complete.
