Situated on a former rail yard, this site comprises over five city blocks of what was once unsightly industrial land. The basic concept was to create a community that became a part of its neighborhood rather than a stand-alone development. All homes have rear-loaded garages to ensure the integrity of an Old Town streetscape. The combination of Federal, Georgian and Victorian architecture and a mixture of colors utilizing brick and cedar siding allow almost no two homes to be alike. The variety of home styles and price points provide a broad range of potential buyers.

Working with Chris Lessard of The Lessard Architectural Group, EYA plied many New Urbanism techniques. It reduced front setbacks to create a more pedestrian-friendly design, re-established efficient city grid patterns, centralized open space, and banished cars to rear-loaded alleys. The resulting density made it possible to aggressively compete with other potential land uses for prime infill sites.
