Real Estate Development
Sage is dedicated to designing unique spaces, creating regenerative boutique hotels & developing strong business models built on intelligent systems.
Our background in design paired with our experience in construction allows us to provide advanced designs for property development. The projects we have planned have always included an element of permaculture and we apply the principles to our concept development phase.
Observing and reporting on the conditions of land is the first step to designing a truly great property. The process we use standardizes our approach to real estate development. Initial audits of terrain, wildlife, natural formations and potential for natural disasters is key for longterm holistic planning of properties.
We emphasize the need to preserve the nature and form a harmony in the design.
We encourage the use of sustainable materials and provide sourcing of local lumber.
We support the development of regenerative boutique hotels and sustainable businesses.
We provide concepts designs for buildings and permaculture designs for farms.
Our goal is to encourage an architectural revolution in Puerto Rico that ushers in a new wave of design. Our travels through Italy, Greece, Mexico and the Caribbean have inspired us to create hybrid designs incorporating international style with local flavor.
