Encompassing over 31 acres, the project envisions a variety of residential typologies, both affordable and market rate, retail, ofﬁce space. The project will also provide a number of community uses available to the adjacent under served neighborhoods, including a new 2,100 seat high school.
The street grid facilitates easy connections to the proposed recreational opportunities and greenbelt, and this connection to the river is accentuated with a esplanade along the projects riverside edge.
The project’s mixed use composition and proximity to a commuter rail line will minimize reliance on the automobile. This and other sustainable design strategies will establish this neighborhood as a model for future urban inﬁll development.
