- Practice Areas
Rivers prepared a site plan for a acre site immediately east of Washington Park. The site is heavily wooded with mixed Pines and Hardwoods. The concept for the site is for senior housing, a market sector currently missing in Washington. The site includes 44 cottage style single-family houses and 11 townhouses. The intent is to disturb the wooded site as little as possible, and to reserve the low area on the southern end of the site for a stormwater control / natural area with trails that extend to the center median and around the edges of the site. A building near River Road would provide a sales office and offices for a homeowners association that will maintain the site. A one-way loop road system is similar in design to nearby neighborhoods in Washington Park, and a community building with dining space and a fireplace anchors the heart of the community. A similar, slightly larger site to the east could possibly be acquired to expand the community in the future. An image board was prepared to illustrate the concepts for the site, and to show that the housing styles are reflective of historic houses in Washington.
