Community, sustainability, and quality of life form the backbone of this new Skokie development. We are creating a “detached townhome” concept that offers the autonomy and space of separate single-family homes complemented by communal access areas. Staggered siting and structures prioritize light and ventilation for each unit. Dutch Woonerf principles inspired the design of a common lane that connects residents and encourages pedestrians and vehicles to safely share space. We included design features, such as pervious pavers, rainwater harvesting, and optional green roofs and electric-car-charging facilities, in each unit to make these new townhomes forward-looking, efficient, and sustainable for years to come.
