The Site


Looking west from the old Roosevelt Hiway.


The Plan
The concept was to include two 3-story two-unit apartment buildings, each with its own garage.
A courtyard would be created between the two units.



Ground level of each unit would include the Entry, Garage, Storage, Utilities, and access to the shared courtyard.



The second level of each unit features a Greatroom with Kitchen, Dining, and Living spaces along with
stairs and a powder room.



The third level features two good-sized Bedrooms, a stacked Laundry closet, and a shared, compartmentalized Bathroom.
