About Carlton Landing
Being 120 miles east of Oklahoma City, and 80 miles west of Tulsa, it is not surprising that Carlton Landing is designed to be explicitly sustainable. The remote 1000-acre community intends to be self-sufficient in every sense. Visionary creator Grant Humphreys, his family, and his Oklahoma City-based development firm have brought to life the fabric of a real place in less than 10 years.Hugging the shores of Lake Eufaula - the largest man-made reservoir in Oklahoma – the town occupies a privileged natural setting with mature vegetation, natural gas wells, and ample lake access complemented by a varied topography that includes steep bluffs and flat areas suitable for agriculture. A small island on the east side is located within the Army Corps of Engineers jurisdiction, but can host public uses such as equestrian trails, a marina facility, and dormitories for summer camps. A second phase, an additional 900 acres, to the south has already been subject of a visioning charrette.

Defining Design Details
