Such careful consideration and concern for legacy and nature would not occur to most developers. But for Camellia Place founding Partners Denise Swords and Lauren Clifton, the story of the trees that lived for more than 55 years on the property at 294 Rope Mill Road in Woodstock and the preservation of their legacy were important to the evolving story of Camellia Place.
“This is not like any other project we’ve worked on,” said Steve Sanchez, principal with HGOR, landscape architects for Camellia Place. “It is new and different because of the involvement of Lauren and Denise, versus a corporate structure. It’s very personal.”
