Located in the Ravenna-Bryant community, the 165,000 SF site includes single-family homes, townhomes, and a mixed-use building that extends the commercial node along NE 65th St. To preserve the existing sites’ character Fazio Associates helped develop a site plan that salvaged over 25 existing trees, including a cluster of Douglas Fir trees that were incorporated into the overall design. Circulation and pedestrian paths were incorporated into the design to enhance the existing pastoral landscape and take advantage of two large exceptional trees that became the major focal point of the internal courtyards ‘central greenbelt’. The sight-lines of the two exceptional trees along with the pedestrian circulation helped blend the 3-different building zones together to help create a unified community that complements the wonderful Bryant neighborhood.
