As a planned New Urban community, Alys Beach was designed as a dense town center along a broad white-sand beach. The location of this project’s parcel not only offered an architecturally prominent location on the urban space named Gulf Green, but also was critical to the town’s urban plan. The form-based code required building to the street on the two sides of the corner where the building stands and dictated a 4-story element on this corner lot.
