SWA has placed a special emphasis on maintaining the riparian corridor with native planting, using consideration when dealing with the archaeologically sensitive areas of the site, as well as existing recreation trails and landscape amenities such as parks and play areas. The internal street grid, architectural and landscape elements are designed to recall the traditions of existing older neighborhoods in Palo Alto and Menlo Park. Built in the Sand Hill corridor, the housing is oriented to employees of Stanford, the medical center and the Research Park.
