ParkVida, Santiago

Conceptual Design & Business Planning

Select Contracts produced an extensive master plan and market study for this exciting new concept in the Caribbean. The designed project was an off-grid, eco-adventure resort in the central mountainous region of the Dominican Republic adjacent to the Armando Bermudez National Park and in sight of the highest peak in the Caribbean, Pico Duarte. The resort was designed to feature 200 beautifully appointed rooms and a bike park with fixed grip chairlift with a wide range of trails. The park also featured a coffee plantation where visitors experience the coffee growing process first hand, hiking trails, river swimming, and restaurants that cooked with locally grown produce.

Baseball Republic Theme Park, Santiago

Conceptual Design & Business Planning

Select Contracts were consulted to develop a unique destination that the Dominican Republic government could develop in conjunction with the private sector to a) provide a destination for all tourists in the country to visit, b) to provide a learning experience on the Dominican culture and heritage, and c) to promote the significant importance of baseball to the country. We provided the conceptual design and business planning for the 500-acre mixed-use leisure and entertainment destination using local geographical themes for each element (to further promote the country) and focused around a baseball heritage. The overall project includes a hotel, theme park, water park, Family Entertainment Centre, golf course, residential, baseball stadium, interactive baseball hall of fame and baseball training grounds.
