About the Project

Botaniko is a new residential community located on a 120-acre former golf course in the City of Weston, Florida with 125 single-family contemporary residences. Just half-a-mile from Everglades National Park, it was designed as an ecotone where the Everglades biome and a suburban community merge. Botaniko was designed primarily with native plants, selected to match those of the Everglades, to create a drought-tolerant, diverse landscape while providing a sense of lushness. Dense green buffers create natural habitat along the community’s streetscapes, parks, lakes, and perimeter.
