Bridging between an innovative approach serving several market sectors, and local influence (aka neighbors) was a driving force for this feasibility study.
Our initial services to our client, a developer with land holdings, included a thorough site assessment, program workshopping, and conceptual designs.
Part One: included a comprehensive site review, overlaying physical, systemic, and market information onto the site, as well as translating aspirations into actual design criteria.
Part Two: Turning the Parameters form Step one into designs. For our client “Putting his vision into actual pictures” was a critical piece of the puzzle in attracting investors, collaborating with planning authorities, and responding to initial resistance from the neighbors. Further seeing a few different design solutions to the same design task helped our client identify opportunities such as phasing options and infrastructure savings.
2019 update: This project is still going through entitlements, and may include a wider transition zone with more units matching its immediate neighbors outside the development.
