Size 180 acres

SWA Group provided land planning and landscape architecture services for an environmentally sensitive 180-acre bay front industrial infill site. The plan provided for 760 single-family and multifamily units clustered on a compact 70-acre portion of the site; 106 additional acres of the site committed to open space uses with emphasis on preservation and enhancement of sensitive wetlands and habitat for endangered species such as the Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse. The community is designed with upland parks and open space that transition to open space areas. Edge conditions of the development allow for a shoreline trail and wildlife viewing areas while controlling access to the habitat areas and wetlands.
