About this Project:

Metropolitan Architecture Studio has designed a new walkable neighborhood in the suburban community of Olmsted Township, Ohio. An example of suburban retrofit planning, the design creates a walkable node within existing suburban development. Fifty new cottage homes are arranged around a common green space, and located within walking distance of basic neighborhood services such as a grocery, drugstore, bank, restaurants, and a walk-in healthcare clinic. The 17 acre site along also contains 35,000 sf of new commercial space. Adjacent to the site is an existing golf range, providing access to recreation and golf cart transportation for residents. The design is suitable for all age groups including young people, families with children, and older adults who desire walkability for many of their daily needs.
