The "Northwest Quadrant"
planning project was initiated by
the Santa Fe Mayor
and Santa Fe City Council,
lead by Kathy McCormick,
Claudia Horn of "Design Workshop" and
Suby Bowden of "Suby Bowden + Associates".
SBA partnered with
and Bohannan Huston,
and a Team of Dedicated Citizen Activists in creating the
master plan and design standards
for Santa Fe’s Northwest Quadrant.
The Design Team worked closely with City Staff and with a large community process lead by Carl Moore.
The land, which is one of Santa Fe’s last remaining Spanish Land Grants, is recognized not only for its history, but also for its scenic terrain and natural beauty.
The master plan area is approximately 540 acres in size,
out of which 280 acres will be a future mixed use, live-work green neighborhood
and 260 acres will be natural preserves, open spaces and pedestrian trail networks
for the City and County of Santa Fe.
