McKay Landscape Architects sought to strengthen this community through thoughtful design, providing numerous common areas, sitting spaces for residents to share and interact, to feel part of a whole. The desired effect was a truly unified housing complex, not individual houses and apartments but one large, interconnected community space; a web of pathways, gardens, and beautiful, affordable dwellings. Sustainability was addressed by using permeable paving, drought resistant plants, rain gardens, rain barrels, and select areas of green roofs.
