Was listening to Shane Bacon's podcast this morning and he had Gil Hanse on. Before he spoke to him, Shane mentioned a project that Gil can't comment on, so he wasn't going to ask him about it. It's possible I missed the discussion of this project on here as I have been mostly out for the last few months. Can anyone comment on if they know anything about this project?
I would think all of the top architects have deals in which they can't or won't discuss until a contract is signed and permitting is complete.My guess is Gil has 3-5 of these type projects that are in the pipeline.

There's just not that much going on.I suspect I know the project they were talking about, because Gil beat me out for the job. But it's not a sure thing to happen yet, anyway.I wish these things would not come up until they are ready to come up. My project with Michael Jordan fell apart a year ago when the rumors about it scuttled the land deal and the landowner upped his price to $25 million because Jordan was involved. Now somebody else is going to develop it ... with a different designer. So thanks to all the people who asked about it here
Do you really think people asking about it here revealed what the dozens of Bears Club members didn't already talk about on a local level for months preceding it's mention on this site?? Really? I'd be more than happy to wager you a pint that the first sniff the landowner had of MJ's involvement came from the North Palm Beach area!
Actually, its pretty sad that anyone needs to request a NDA. Most architects have the sense just to not talk about a potential clients business for all the obvious reasons.Back when NGF surveyed architects to see the projects on the boards, you could tell from the lists that some guys put on every project they might have a shot at. I was always on the other end of the spectrum. I would never list a project until it was built or under construction, for fear someone, somehow, would take it away. But mostly, because I respected the clients right to inform the public as they saw fit.
Jeff,It's funny...back when Golf Course News Magazine was rolling archies pr firms would be listing every project they had a call from. Now you don't even want anyone to know what town or country you are flying to if you see someone in the airport. I'm with you on not mentioning anything. That's why I have not mentioned the 4 new projects I have in Dallas to anyone until now
.....I guess its true - you are a bigger expert when you come from out of town.

On Instagram, Gil posted a photo of the Great Wall of China; he's doing a site visit for his project at Phoenix Valley, located north of Beijing.https://www.instagram.com/p/BKIvClmDZDj/?taken-by=gil_hansehttp://www.perkinseastman.com/project_2400367_phoenix_valley_golf_course
