Aas of 8.05.10, plans were approved for the vegetation-clad Palazzo Park Hotel & Residences, the first luxury beachfront hotel and condominium resort in Costa Rica to be built with the latest green building techniques, including the country's largest greenroof at 40,000 square feet.

Designing the luxury development in Manuel Antonio, one of the world's premier eco tourism destinations, is Arqueco Ltda., an environmentally-aware Costa Rican architectural and engineering firm. Incorporating LEED-certified materials, construction plans include building techniques and technologies aimed at creating a human habitat with negative carbon footprint. A key component of Palazzo Park is Costa Rica's first large-scale living roof, proposed by project developer KC Development Group.

The project team announced its alliance with the Eco Preservation Society, Palazzo Park Eco Action, to renew and preserve land adjacent to Manuel Antonio Park. More than 500 acres of land at Playa El Rey adjoins the Park, which will expand the habitat for the endangered, but peaceful and playful, Mono Titi squirrel monkey. A portion of each sale at Palazzo Park will fund the Eco Action Program
