Parkside Phase 1 replaced an abandoned YMCA facility with a 4-story mixed-use building containing 36 low-income housing units, a community center and commercial spaces (January 2012). Phase 2 will consist of an additional 36 units - construction set to begin fall 2014.|
|Design: ||Our goal in Phase 1 was to create a dynamic building with ample communal and courtyard spaces, while adhereing to an extremely tight budget and difficult property zoning.
Phase 2 consists of three separate buildings, placed so as to again create family-friendly and useable courtyard/ landscaped areas. Phase 2 will also include a playground facility, to be shared by residents of the entire development. |
|Role: ||For Phase 1, I worked on the schematic/3d design and CD's. For Phase 2, I worked on all phases of the design, including client meetings and coordination with all consultants.
