A neighborhood designed with an eye for walkability

The West Five community is a 70-acre mixture of office, retail, residential and public open spaces. Designed using the Envision TM Framework, the community is the model of smart design, incorporating significant energy saving and renewable initiatives, to promote a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. 

We created a setting that imparts a sense of place and connects the surrounding communities. West Five establishes unique architecture, aesthetically pleasing public spaces and vistas, identifiable landmarks and an overall people-first scale of development.

This will be a first in what has traditionally been an area of detached, single family homes. A robust, multimodal strategy—using density and a mixture of uses to encourage non-vehicle traffic—held the key to creating a highly livable community. In the plan, we focused on a park-once-and-walk approach for drivers. This required signature pedestrian spaces, but also strong connectivity between neighborhood features. Significant housing and job densities were used as a catalyst to generate pedestrian trips on a network of walkable, bikeable streets.
