What will the design, materials and landscape look like?
The architects on the Grandhome design team are seeking to use materials that reflect local architectural character in north Donside. Street tree planting and green spaces, using indigenous species, will be incorporated to complement the built form.
The town is being designed following the principles of new urbanism, making place making and public space a high priority. Grandhome will have walkable blocks and streets, housing and shopping being placed in close proximity, and accessible public spaces. The area is designed to accommodate multimodal transportation including walking, bicycling, and driving, and more than double the green space required by planning standards.
