The ultimate goal was to create a new, active, mixed-use development as an attractive address for urban living in the East Riverfront district.
HAA believed the riverfront area had the opportunity to celebrate connections with green space while also encompassing a strong urban center, complete with active ground floor retail. Taking inspiration from the surrounding context and the mostly industrial type buildings that dot the area, the design employs both a mix of traditional and modern residential character including townhomes and multi-unit typologies. Predominately flat roofs, brick with fiber cement and metal panel accent are utilized to highlight a combination of warehouse and modern aesthetics.
HAA’s design approach encourages a modern architectural aesthetic. Since the completion of the Riverfront Neighborhood Study, HAA continues to evolve this design approach in projects located in Brush Park and Corktown.
