Platinum award for “Best in American Living” for large scale residential communities, National Association of Home Builders

MRA provided homebuilder services, land planning, engineering, and landscape architecture for this project which involves over 405 acres of land, designated as Environmentally Sensitive Developing Area in the County Comprehensive Plan. This 913-unit Residential Planned Community (RPC), focusing on environmental protection and enhancement, was designed to preserve over 139 acres (36%) of open space with 90 acres (50%) of the existing forest remaining for trails and passive open space.  Through clustering and coving principles, an average 190-foot vegetated buffer was provided along Collins Creek, which serves as the dominant environmental feature.
