Estate Concordia Preserve, a 50 acre resort community incorporating sustainable design, nestled on a hillside on the south of St. John the Emerald Gem of The Virgin Islands, is beginning the first stages of construction on it's yoga pavilion. It has been two years since Estate Concordia began its third and fourth phases of Eco Tent construction. We have finished 14 solar powered eco tents that have been received with great review. Four of the cabins have been made accessible for individuals with disabilities or limited mobility.

The 2005 phase of the Eco Tents was exciting as we all labored on an arid hillside to construct seven new cabins overlooking the Caribbean Sea and out to the British Virgin Islands where the waves knock on your door 24 hours a day and the wind is a constant fan.

The future looks exciting as we have plans for a new restaurant, an amphitheatre, a gift shop, and an arts and crafts facility where glass blowing will be demonstrated and taught. We are very excited about the Yoga Pavilion that was designed by Architect, Glenn Speer who designed the exquisite Mongoose Junction in Cruz Bay. The Yoga Pavilion will have massage rooms and a café, a marvelous addition to Estate Concordia.

Entrepreneur and Civil Engineer, Stanley Selengut is the visionary behind Estate Concordia and it’s popular parent resort Maho Bay Camps: He has created a place where time stops. Where the moon and sun rise out of the sea. A non-pretentious place where nature is the entertainment.

St. John has become in demand for it's natural island beauty…forever protected by The National Park System. St. John offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Caribbean. One and two acre parcels are for sale down the road from Estate Concordia where underground utilities have been placed and a paved road has been set. Estate Concordia will be setting up a Villa Management Company that will provide many services for it's guests including Maintenance, Provisioning, Housekeeping, and Construction.

Phew! Seems like quite a bit of work is store for all of us. We are also finishing up on our employee housing where we are creating a Constructed Wetland:

Check back with us as Stanley Selengut, Maggie Day, Dave Thompson, Victor Nunnally, Shay Copeland, Glenn Speer, Mary Blezin, Joe Feraco, Segundo Soto, Kevin Updike, and all the wonderful people who work on this project put together a resort community based on sustainable design. We are working on improving our co-existence with nature. Come along with us and experience putting together this unique community. Check for Blog postings every few days to observe our journey. Hope to see you soon.

We would like to start off by saying congratulations to Dave and Kat on their recent union at Lameshur Bay.
