See Site PlanEnlarged Site Plan and Contextual Images

This site is located in a Neighborhood Main Street Node, within a mixed-use district in a large-sized city, along a commercial corridor. The district consists of varied, mostly traditional and historic structures, with heights ranging from one to four stories. This Neighborhood Main Street Node is in need of revitalization and reinvestment, including services within walking distance that provide day- to-day amenities, and small local businesses. The intent is to show how medium density housing (T4/T5) can be appropriately integrated into this context.

Site Context: Upper T4, Lower T5.

Build-to-Line: Must establish a Build-to-Line in accordance with New Urbanism Principles as appropriate for Transect Zones T4/T5.

Building Height: Min 3 stories, Max 5 stories.

Building Circulation: Can include interior corridors, but the length of corridors should be minimized.

Building Entries: Should be oriented toward a street or shared space, not toward a driveway.

Building Types: Non-single family units (multiple units on site or within building). Options for this site might include:

o   Live/Work Units

o   Stacked Units (also known as Stacked Flats)

o     Courtyard Apartments (also known as U-Court)

o     Mid-Rise Apartments (also known as Mansion Apartments)

o   Vertical Mixed-Use Buildings.
