Design-for-Development, Hunters View
Publication Date: May 2008
Hunters View was initially 267 units in 50 two- to three-story buildings spread over a 20-acre site. Because so many of the units became uninhabitable, the original 267 units only housed 148 families by the time construction began on phase I in 2010. The obsolete buildings were in dire need of replacement. Furthermore, disconnected streets, poor public transportation, and steep inclines isolated Hunters View from the broader neighborhood.
This report focuses on the existing conditions of Hunters View and the development standards for redesigning the site and the street grid in the near future.
