Massive Mexican community lands Beck International as builder

Beck International has picked up a $200 million contract to build a 278-home project in Mexico.

Beck International , the Tampa headquartered unit of The Beck Group in Dallas will construct Agua Viva, which will be part of the second phase of The Villages of Loreto Bay. That will be built along five miles of estuaries and canals on the Sea of Cortez in Baja Sur. The Villages is a $3 billion master-planned community that is set to become the largest sustainable resort community in North America, and is being managed by Beck Internacional de Mexico.

Aqua Viva will feature private and public courtyards, along with a village center featuring cafes, studios and galleries as well as performance spaces, gatherings spots and wide promenades along the water's edge.

Homes will range in size from 1,500 square feet to 3,000 square feet and will be constructed using Spanish Colonial architecture. That includes interior landscaped courtyards, fountains and wrought iron detailing.

Construction will move quickly, with completion expected in about a year, a release said.

The resort itself is set to enhance the ecosystem of the land it occupies by harvesting more potable water than it consumes, and to generate energy through solar and wind power.

Also, 5,000 of the 8,000 acres will be a nature preserve with trails for hiking, cycling and horseback riding.

In the end, it will include 6,000 residences, beach club, spa, golf, tennis, and an artisan's village and recreational facilities.

The Beck Group is a full service design-build firm founded in 1912 with offices throughout the United States and Mexico.

I'm glad to see so much land set aside and being preserved.  That is being done a lot in Austin and should be done every where it is possible and economically feasible,
