Project Description

Concord Riverwalk was conceived as an alternative to typical market-rate housing. It satisfies the key tenets of smart growth by redeveloping an underutilized suburban infill site that is close to town and public transit, re-purposing existing historic houses, and creating a safe, walkable, community-focused neighborhood. Each home within the village is designed to provide ample light and views, but with the houses located 15-20 feet apart, privacy is an obvious concern. The site plan was designed so that each home has a floor plan that carefully responds to the adjacent homes. Thoughtful site-planning focused on small footprints oriented to optimize solar gain, storm water management through low-impact development techniques, and permanently protecting over 50% of the land as open space. To meet Net Zero energy standards, the project uses a combination of active and passive strategies and integrates high-performance building technology, including ultra low-energy building envelope assemblies and mechanical systems.
