"The design demonstrates excellence in pedestrian scaled contextual urban infill grayfield redevelopment, enriching the public realm while fulfilling the private program. It revitalizes the center of this historic neighborhood on a busy transit corridor. The design demonstrates modern intervention that is sensitive to its historical context in scale, massing, form, materials/finishes and detail language. Behind a proposed 22 unit mixed-use condominium building, we designed 24 townhouses and 4 SFD transition into the residential neighborhood behind, with 4, 3-1/2, 2-1/2, and 2 stories (including two affordable dwellings). This is a block length application of the transect from the corridor main street down into the detached single family dwellings. The plan completes the street grid, extending a dead end street through and providing cross connections midblock. The architecture is a modern re-interpretation that responds to context, from craftsman and colonial revival existing residential, transitioning up to the commercial and civic uses at Main Street. The architecture of buildings fronting each street respond to this while the internal grouping allows for a complete realization (of both sides) of each new alley/street. A new pocket park is shared. 22 Apt. condos, 4 retail bays/5,460 sf, 24 townhouses, 4 SFD. 1. Innovative site plan 2. Urbanizes and densifies redevelopment to pedestrian oriented mixed-uses, completes street grid 3. Replaces suburban auto uses blight and re-establishes pedestrian scaled street walls 4. Sensitive Contextural Architecture - a modern interpretation of historic neighborhood 5. A catalyst for revitalization of the Lee Highway and neighborhood center"Read more at this project's website.
