Las Catalinas in Costa Rica Announces the Completion of Beach Town via Katherine Han by 360 Magazine

Las Catalinas Announces the Completion Beach Town

Las Catalinas Announces Completion of Beach Town Neighborhood Car-free seaside town in Costa Rica continues to innovate a better way of living

In 2006, the innovators behind a car-free town aspired to create a better way of life connecting people to nature in a place where 1,000 acres of a 1200-acre property would remain undeveloped as a tropical dry forest reserve. After  16 years of planning and construction,  that vision is now a reality with the completion of the neighborhood of Beach Town in Las Catalinas.  Referred to as one of the most important and beautiful new towns in the world by renowned Notre Dame School of Architecture Professor Douglas Duany, Las Catalinas is located in the northwestern province of Costa Rica.  Inspired by New Urbanism, the town offers a sustainable lifestyle that is influenced by the natural surroundings. Throughout its development, the town’s  commitment to nature remains as one of its main core values.

Consisting of approximately 150 single family residences, 14 mixed use buildings, and over a dozen commercial and civic buildings across 21 acres of land along the Pacific Coast, Beach Town is a high-density, car-free town. With friendly neighborhoods, walkable streets and plazas, and timeless architecture, Beach Town was conceptualized to combine leisure and urban living with an emphasis on the natural surroundings.  Beach Town is connected to two Pacific Ocean beaches and over 30 miles of hiking and biking trails in thriving tropical dry forests reserves. With a rich network of narrow passageways, stair streets and public plazas, the town weaves together 150 residences, two hotels, a beach club, eight restaurants and a variety of shops, offices and businesses centered on living well.  In 2022, The Congress for New Urbanism celebrated Beach Town with a Charter Award recognizing the town for achieving “more equitable, sustainable, connected, healthy, and prosperous communities.” Most activities, conversations and meals are enjoyed in the fresh air under shade trees or on the outdoor covered terraces within the timeless tropical architecture. The value placed on walkability and relationship to nature creates an engaging place to visit.

“While the radical idea to build a car-free town received pushback even from the initial design team, our walkable town now seems the most natural and preferred way to be,” said Roberto Villalobos, Sub-Director of Design and Construction for Las Catalinas.  “Car-free public realms invite natural sociability and freedom for children that can be enjoyed equally by all. The resulting density allows for more balanced natural-urban transects.  Beach Town’s minimal footprint creates a sustainable infrastructure not just for the natural environment, but also for an active and healthy lifestyle full of organic, human, and architectural beauty.”

Beach Town has come to life over the years and offers a vibrant and eclectic mix of retail businesses embracing a way of life that supports the natural fabric of town.  Beach Town Travel can arrange stays at the two hotels in town – Santarena Hotel and Posada San Rafael or with an array of villa options from flats to five-bedroom villas. The eight food and beverage venues located in Beach Town include Ponciana, Pots & Bowls, Pascual, Papagayo BrewHouse, La Taqueria at Beach Club, The Deli at Copper & Stone Gourmet, Cuatro Calle La Ronda and Coquelicot. The town’s boutique shops and stores include Las Catalinas Collection, Chunches Consignment, D’Aqui Design and Copper & Stone Gourmet Market. Beach Town also offers CORE by Chakfitness, Center of Joy, Pura Vida Ride, Wake Day Spa, ConnectOcean, BLP and Elif Academy for visitors and residents to enjoy.

Walk through Beach Town with founder Charles Brewer and the Town Architect team to learn about the challenges, successes and missteps made in planning and developing Beach Town in microphases. “Lessons will be applied as our eyes aim to the ambitious development of the remaining 180 acres of Las Catalinas all surrounded by our 1,000-acre natural tropical dry forest preserve,” Villalobos further explained.  “The next neighborhood underway includes El Prado where residences, mixed use buildings, parks, and neighborhoods have started vertical construction for an ambitious 600 buildings across 60 acres – most of which get panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and are surrounded by 40 kilometers of hiking and mountain biking trails.”

Located just east of Beach Town in El Prado, Lantana Residences is a collection of ocean view homes and flats built into the hillside. Set to begin construction in the second quarter of 2023, Lantana Residences are located in the second neighborhood in Las Catalinas on the hillside of El Prado. The residences flank a picturesque stair street and offer the most dramatic urban and ocean views in Las Catalinas. The residences are slated for completion in July 2025. Ranging from one to four bedrooms, Lantana Residences offer dramatic views, plentiful outdoor spaces, crafted interior finishes with spectacular architecture. Slanted rooftops, thick walls, high ceilings, clever ventilation, and other structural considerations provide respite from the outdoor elements in the Guanacaste tropical dry forest. Indoor and outdoor living spaces, pools, and outdoor terraces embrace the climate and allow for comfortable indoor and outdoor living. Wood and other materials used are from sustainable sources and all buildings are designed to be energy efficient.

The crowning jewel of the Lantana neighborhood is its stair-street architecture modeling pedestrian Mediterranean hill towns of the Old World. Not only are stair streets visually stunning, but they link people, places, and conversations together, providing an intricate tapestry that weaves lives together. Utilizing its intense sloping topography, Arosemena & Way Arquitectos designed the stair streets of Lantana to create a way for visitors and residents to explore the neighborhood from the shops, plazas, parks, and streets of lower levels of El Prado to the higher vistas, residences, and trail heads of the upper neighborhoods of El Prado. Highly visible from nearly all areas of town while offering a panoramic ocean and town view, the stair streets of Lantana enhance the pedestrian experience which is the cornerstone of Las Catalinas in encouraging interaction and engagement among residents and visitors.  The Lantana neighborhood will feature nine buildings and an intricate array of plazas, parks, and community pool. Residences offer a variety of floorplans ranging from 484 square feet to 3,843 square feet. For more information, email sales@lascatalinascr.com or 1-866-357-3872 or visit www.lantanaresidences.com.

About Las Catalinas, www.lascatalinascr.com

The conscious town of Las Catalinas is Costa Rica’s newest desirable beach town inspired by New Urbanist philosophy. The car-free, highly walkable town includes several inns and intimate hotels, shops, restaurants, retail, day spas, pedestrian streets, parks, plazas, and recreational facilities, all located between two of Costa Rica’s loveliest Pacific beaches and 1,000 acres of protected tropical dry forest, which are interlaced with extensive hiking and biking trails. Within the town, the walkable public spaces are interwoven with nature, and the architecture emphasizes indoor-outdoor living and scenic views. Cars are refreshingly absent. Founder Charles Brewer’s core values and beliefs include environmental stewardship, connection to one another and to the rhythms of nature, promotion of wellness, and an emphatic preference for quality of life over quantity of material possessions, understanding that the “good life” is not about material possessions but about human connections, good health, and ecological sustainability.

NNENA RETURNS WITH HER NEW SINGLE “PMTWGR”

ANNOUNCED AS THE OPENER FOR RINI’S “PAST THE NAKED EYE” TOUR 

  • LISTEN HERE “PMTWGR”
  • KICKS OFF WEDNESDAY, 11/30 – BUY TICKETS HERE

Nnena returns with her new single “PMTWGR” featuring Ncognita & KT via Loud Robot/RCA Records. Heavy on soul grooves courtesy of producer Ben Oyortey Jr, the song is confident and fun, using witty rhymes to address that PMTWGR. In addition to releasing her latest single, it’s also been announced that she’s joining Rini’s “Past The Naked Eye” tour as an opener. The tour kicks off tomorrow, 11/30, and will hit cities such as Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles, and more – buy tickets HERE.

  • Listen to “PMTWGR” HERE and watch the visualizer, directed by Deondrae Jones HERE.

Last year, Nnena showcased her range and versatility on her EP  …Just Cause. The four-track EP features Childish MajorDaVionne and WESTSIDE BOOGIE – the latter on the standout track “Come Again.” This new project follows the release of her debut EP Bipolar AF, the first release from the partnership between Loud Robot, the record label from JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot and RCA Records.

Additionally, Nnena was featured on Insecure: Music From The HBO Original Series, Season 5soundtrack with her memorable single “Fun,” which is currently the second highest streamed track on the album on Spotify. This week Nnena had her late night television debut performing the track on The Late Late Show with James Corden – watch it here

An incredible writer, lyricist, rapper and vocalist, bursting with effusive energy and a massive personality, the Cleveland native, born Nnena Adigwe to Nigerian parents, credits some of her robust, descriptive storytelling impulses to her past screenwriting experience. Nnena began writing comedic sketches during college and that soon led to working on more full-fledged projects—the kinds of works that needed sound tracking. Rather than pay licensing fees, she tried her hand at making her own music.  Her music reflects her eclectic influences ranging from Otis Redding to Millie Jackson, from Queen Latifah to Miriam Makeba to Kendrick Lamar and especially  “Lauryn Hill, she molded me the most,” along with other neo-soul genre artists Musiq Soulchild and Jill Scott, as well from Drake, J. Cole, to Tiwa Savage.

Nnena is currently working on her debut album; stay tuned for more music coming soon.

Lexus – December to Remember

Lexus ‘December to Remember’ Celebrates Moments of Connection. New commercial, Sprinkles giveaways spread holiday cheer with annual return of iconic campaign 

Every year, Lexus ushers in the holidays with the December to Remember campaign including the familiar jingle, the red bow and the gift-giving moment. This year, the signature red bow returns with a twist in a new spot called “Time Machine.” And, in a holiday first, Lexus is partnering with Sprinkles to make December a bit sweeter with exclusive giveaways at nationwide Sprinkles locations courtesy of Lexus dealers. 

Lexus × Sprinkles via 360 MAGAZINE.
Lexus × Sprinkles via 360 MAGAZINE.

“This year’s ‘December to Remember’ celebrates the holidays as a joyful time to reconnect with loved ones,” said Vinay Shahani, vice president of Lexus marketing. “Our dealers do a great job of extending hospitality to our guests year-round. This holiday season, on behalf of our dealers, we’re inviting guests to enjoy a special Sprinkles treat and pay it forward to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.”   

Lexus continues to be a proud partner of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Starting on Giving Tuesday, November 29, guests will have the opportunity to donate through a unique link found on social and in Sprinkles stores when they pick up their complimentary holiday treats.  For every donation made through the link between November 29 and January 3, Lexus will match donations up to $250,000. 

In the “Time Machine” commercial, debuting today, a young boy waits impatiently for the holidays. He becomes convinced that his family’s new RX is a time machine and wonders if it might make the holidays come faster. In a variation of the campaign’s signature gift-giving moment, this year’s gift comes in the form of the little boy being reunited with his older brother, who comes home early from college to surprise him. The red bow, instead of appearing on top of the car, appears on a present his brother brings with him. In addition, Lexus is bringing back two popular “December to Remember” spots from last year — “Runway” and “Wonderland.”

In its own gift-giving moment, Lexus is treating guests to an exclusive complimentary offer in partnership with Sprinkles at locations nationwide. From Friday, December 2, through Sunday, December 4, red velvet cupcakes will be gifted courtesy of Lexus and its dealers – each of the three days for one hour between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. (also while supplies last).

JAVIIELO DEBUTS “SANTUARIO”

ALONG WITH THE SINGLE “BYE” FT. OMY DE ORO

STREAM “SANTUARIO” HERE

Puerto Rican urban breakthrough artist Javiielo released his debut album Santuario along with the single “BYE” featuring Omy De Oro. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

Excitement around Javiielo has never been higher with the latest release of his new 21 song album Santuario, cementing the young Puerto Rican’s place amongst Latin urban music’s elite. Led by the track “Bye” ft. Puerto Rican rapper Omy de Oro, Santuario takes listeners on a raw and emotional journey about heartbreak, love, and life’s ups and downs.  The featured single, “Bye” is a sexy song about courting a woman who seems unattainable due to her beauty and attributes, yet in the end Javiielo is confident enough to win her over with his smooth talk and seductive compliments.

The music visualizer, directed by Ness.PR, is as sexy as the song, showing Javiielo at a house party with his friends dancing, drinking and vibing out. The party-starter track illustrates Javiielo‘s musical diversity showing he can make a club hit with as much addictive potency as his love songs.

With silky smooth vocals and a danceable reggaeton beat, La Notafeaturing Brray, Joyce Santana, and Nekxum sets the tone for the start of the album, as they talk about having a good time and being with a woman. In “365Javiielo declares his love for a woman, as he’s always talking about her at home, in the studio, in other countries, and misses her as he dreams about her everyday. In “En ReadJaviielo’s vocals create a clear melodic tone as he sings about having one night with a lover, but wanting another although the situation is complicated.  Javiielo further explores a complicated situation in “Incompatibles” ft. Giglo y La Exce & Nekxum when he sings, “When I’m with another I think of you more // When you leave, I’m dying to have you” but this time he is emotionally exhausted and ready to move on, despite still missing his lover. He talks about being healed but not over the relationship, singing “We descended from heaven into an abyss.”

Santuario comes after the release of his last three singles, which totaled over 10M+ streams.  With this new album, Javiielo is looking to replicate the success of the last collaboration and smash hit remix of his song “Pa Los Gustos Los Colores” which generated over 100M+ plays worldwide. With the excitement of his album release, Javiielo is set to perform his new music at the Monitor Latino Music Awards on November 30th.

As guests entered the venue they were greeted with a custom pop-up shop with some of Milano Di Rouge’s top selling pieces as well as cocktails powered by D’usse. VIP’S enjoyed an exclusive MDR Sky Lounge, where they were able to connect with other like minded entrepreneurs ahead of the show and sip crafted themed cocktails such as the “Milano”.

The show opened with a powerful performance by famed Black Ballerina, Jewel Ellis. She danced eloquently down the aisles to DJ Khaled’s hit record, “Grateful”, a reflection of the pulse of the brand and the 10 year celebration.

As the music began, the models graced the runway donning the latest designs Milano Di Rouge has to offer with bold prints, trending colorways and cutting-edge styles for men, women and children. Celebrities such as Lil Meech from acclaimed show “BMF”, rap star Rich Homie Quan, popular thought leader 19Keys, social media stars The McClure Twins and reality tv star Mendecees Jr walked the runway in support of the acclaimed brand. Renowned stylist Amiraa Vainqueur dressed all of the models, ensuring each look was elevated and high-fashion with a hint of edge.

Milan gave an empowering speech at the gala and presented her team with custom Gamble jackets which are currently available on her site as well as custom t-shirt designed plaques to show her appreciation for their dedication to the brand throughout her 10 year journey.

“I’m overwhelmed by the continued support and love I’ve been shown throughout these past 10 years. Through the highs and lows we’ve been able to maintain integrity, quality and faith which our brand has been built upon. This journey has taught me so much and I’m determined to continue keeping the dream alive to inspire others to do the same”, Milan stated. The insightful and beautiful experience was curated by event producer Bysukii who delivered an elevated and memorable weekend.

RENEÉ RAPP ANNOUNCES FIRST-EVER TOUR

RENEÉ RAPP ANNOUNCES FIRST-EVER HEADLINING TOUR KICKING OFF DECEMBER 6TH IN LOS ANGELES

  • EMOTIONAL DEBUT EP EVERYTHING TO EVERYONE OUT NOW – LISTEN HERE

Reneé Rapp announces first-ever headlining tour in support of debut EP, Everything to Everyone. Kicking off on December 6th in Los Angeles, this tour will be an opportunity for fans to experience the emotional project in an intimate setting that highlights Rapp’s raw vocal talent. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, November 18th at 10 AM local time. More information can be found HERE.

EVERYTHING TO EVERYONE TOUR DATES:

December 6th   Los Angeles, CA   Troubadour

December 13th  New York, NY      Bowery Electric

December 15th  Boston, MA          Sonia’s

December 18th  Atlanta, GA          Vinyl

Today’s announcement arrives on the heels of Reneé’s debut EP Everything To Everyone, an emotional 7-track project which highlights her vocal prowess and versatility as she shifts from soaring emotional ballads to polished pop anthems. The stripped-back title track and EP opener explores Rapp’s desire to show up for the important people in her life. Next up is the multi-hyphenate’s breakout single “In the Kitchen,” which reflects on a doomed relationship, and a brand new track titled “Colorado” that expresses her desire to leave Los Angeles behind. It’s the kind of unfiltered anthem that made her most recent release, “Don’t Tell My Mom,” so gut-wrenching. On the track, Rapp details her tumultuous, tight knit relationship with her mother. Don’t tell my mom, I’m fallin’ apart,” she belts over minimal synths. “She hurts when I hurt, my scars are her scars.” The EP is rounded out by the songs “What Can I Do,” “Too Well,” and “Moon,” each of which showcases a slightly different shade of Rapp’s musical palate. It’s the kind of collection with a song for every mood or emotional state. 

The EP follows the singles “Don’t Tell My Mom,” “In the Kitchen,” and “Tattoos,” which have amassed more than 22 million combined streams. Throughout her career, Rapp has displayed a knack for captivating audiences with vibrant performances and unbridled energy. Outside of music, she stars in the hit HBO Max series The Sex Lives of College Girls, which has its season 2 premiere next week. It’s a role that calls for brilliant comedic timing and dramatic prowess, both of which the newcomer has in spades. With Everything to Everyone, Rapp underlines the breadth and depth of her talent, veering from soaring ballads to uptempo pop anthems without missing a beat. 

ABOUT RENEÉ RAPP:

Reneé Rapp knew she was born to perform ever since she was a child. Even in her earliest memories, her love of music was always present. “I couldn’t sit still in the car unless there was music,” she says. “Otherwise, I would cry the entire time.” The North Carolina native began harnessing her natural creativity by writing and recording songs when she was just a teenager. Eventually, her career took off when she landed the coveted role of Regina George in the Tony-nominated Mean Girls musical on Broadway. Shortly after, she found widespread recognition and praise—from the likes of W, Harper’s Bazaar, and The Hollywood Report for her performance as “Leighton” on the HBO Max series “The Sex Lives of College Girls” written by Mindy Kaling. Now, more empowered than ever, Rapp turns her attention back to music, where sharing threadbare insecurities on “Tattoos” is just the beginning. “I was called ‘crazy’ a lot growing up because I didn’t know what was going on with me,” she says. “As I got older and started going to therapy, I reclaimed the word in a way that feels good to me.” In this song and in the rest of her music to come Rapp leans into a uniquely bold showcase of vulnerability to connect with her ever-growing fandom. Eager to continue to share her emotions with the world, Reneé has much more music on the way under her recent signing to Interscope Records

RICH THE KID RETURNS WITH “MOTION”

RICH THE KID RETURNS WITH A NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “MOTION” — ANNOUNCES SIGNING WITH RCA RECORDS

LISTEN HERE / WATCH HERE

Rich The Kid is back with the release of his new single and video “Motion” – listen here / watch here. Over a hypnotizing, melodic beat, Rich spits bars and punctuates his return to music. Directed by DREWFILMEDIT, the visual captures Rich in motion during his daily life. Talking about the new single Rich states, “If you not having ‘Motion’ you have nothing.” The latest drop also comes alongside the announcement of his signing to RCA Records. 

Watch “Motion” HERE.

Born in Queens, New York, Rich found himself immersed in the street rap scene, particularly the escalating beef between Jay-Z and Nas. At just nine years old, Rich was taken by their slick wordplay. New York may have given him his penchant for lyrics, but Atlanta gave him his swag, as he was bound for the South at 11 and started listening to artists like T.I. and Outkast thanks to his uncle. Rich started creating his own music and promoted it through social media, but in order to double down on getting his songs played, he networked heavily and built relationships to get his music heard. In March of 2018, he cut the intoxicating track “New Freezer,” Kendrick Lamar hopped on the track shortly thereafter and a star was born. The double platinum track was followed by the triple platinum colossal single “Plug Walk” later in 2018. The World Is Yours album debuted that same year, followed by The World Is Yours 2 in 2019. In March of 2020, he dropped Boss Man just as the pandemic leaned in, boasting collaborations with the likes of Lil Baby, Nicki Minaj, Post Malone and several others. “The pandemic allowed me to get my mojo back and build a body of work,” Rich explains. “The next album I’m releasing is from songs I’ve recorded through quarantine up until now.”

For Rich, his motion also includes spreading his wings, as he’s gearing up to release music exploring different genres, collaborating with new artists and more. The motion won’t stop from here.

Check out “Motion” and stay tuned for more coming from Rich The Kid.

In August 2022, Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey and Flying Dog Brewery launched their first joint limited edition product release collaboration, “The Osopher Project,” to celebrate their shared history and commemorate their founder George Stranahan. The limited-edition whiskey sold out in 72 hours, with people lining up outside of the Stranahan’s distillery in Denver, Colorado, beginning at midnight on launch day. The limited-edition Flying Dog beer also immediately sold out at specific Maryland retailers. Both Stranahan’s and Flying Dog are excited to bring their partnership to the next level on a national scale – an expansion truly dedicated to their dedicated fans.

About “The Osopher Project”

Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey and Flying Dog Brewery have a shared connection, history, and founder; however, The Osopher Project, launched in the summer of 2022, marked the first joint product release for the two companies. This collaboration celebrates the intersection of George Stranahan’s accomplishments as a distiller and brewer. The resulting beer and whiskey is a true testament to the art, science, and creativity on which George built both companies. The Osopher speaks to the idea that you can pursue anything if you’re just crazy enough to try it.

The Osopher Single Malt Whiskey

Stranahan’s “The Osopher” is the oldest whiskey the distillery has ever bottled. It stays true to George Stranahan’s passion for creativity and Stranahan’s commitment to innovating American Single Malt Whiskey. It starts its journey of aging for 11 years at the distillery before being matured for another four months in barrels used to age Flying Dog’s Road Dog Porter. The flavor profile consists of the following:
● Nose: Coffee cake. Roasty malt mingles with toffee and barrel char
● Palate: Dark chocolate caramels, sherried-soaked plums, and a dash of aged hops
● Finish: Bread pudding and barley wine temper to a dry finish

The Osopher Imperial Road Dog Porter

The limited-edition Flying Dog beer created for The Osopher Project is an imperial version of Road Dog Porter, an early creation by the brewery. Road Dog was one of the first beers to be wrapped in original artwork by internationally renowned artist Ralph Steadman; a version of this label was used to create The Osophers for both brands as well as the NFT. Flying Dog’s imperial Road Dog Porter was aged in 10- year-old Stranahan’s Whiskey barrels before being bottled. The results are:

● Aroma: Dark chocolate and caramel dominate the aroma, followed by cocoa butter and maple that finishes with light notes of nutty vanilla.
● Palate: A velvety smooth explosion of chocolate, vanilla cream, toasted pecans, toffee, and maple balanced with hints of caramel, spice, and tobacco from the whiskey.

Stranahan’s The Osopher carries a 47.3% ABV and Flying Dog’s The Osopher carries a 12% ABV. This project is powered by YellowHeart, the Web3 marketplace for ticketing, music, and memberships.

About Flying Dog Brewery

As the 35th largest craft brewery in the U.S., Flying Dog has a reputation for brewing premium beer that pushes the confines of traditional styles out of our home base in Frederick, MD. From hop-heavy favorites like The Truth Imperial IPA and Double Dog Double IPA to left-of-the-dial best sellers like Kujo Cold Brew Coffee Porter and Dead Rise Old Bay Summer Ale – we take pride in challenging the status quo. Our brand is built on the gospel of Gonzo, drawing inspiration from Hunter S. Thompson’s relentless truth seeking and Ralph Steadman’s provocative drawings. In the true gonzo spirit, when authoritarians have tried to censor our creativity, we’ve gone to Federal court defending our right to free speech and
expression and won. At Flying Dog, we challenge conformity, embrace the weird, and encourage you to Cut The Leash and reclaim your independence. For more information visit flyingdog.com.

About Ralph Steadman
When George Stranahan first founded the Flying Dog Brewery just outside of Aspen, Hunter S Thompson immediately suggested Ralph Steadman produce the labels for their first beer, Road Dog. Flying Dog still uses Ralph’s work on their beer bottles today so it was a natural fit to use that first artwork on the Osopher Whiskey. Steadman is best known for his collaborations with Hunter S Thompson including Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and The Curse of Lono. He has illustrated literary classics such as Alice in Wonderland and Treasure Island, and written his own books including I Leonardo, Freud and The Big I Am. Other collaborations include Pyschogeography with Will Self and the Gonzovation Trilogy about endangered animals with Ceri Levy. Ever the trailblazer, Ralph has recently begun minting his art as NFTs on objkt.com at steadmanart.tez and is enjoying exploring the new opportunities that Web 3 offer.
