Planning | Infill
Veo is a dynamic, walkable mixed-use district adjacent to the civic center, delivering ownership housing on this city infill site. The planning goal for both the city and developer was to deliver affordable homes to a wide range of buyers who’ve otherwise been excluded from the metropolitan marketplace by rising prices. Veo responds by creating 4 levels of stacked flats over ground floor retail on the urban arterial, terraced down to 3 story townhomes in the development’s center, and further dropped to 2 story townhomes and single-family homes at the site’s southern end. Looped vehicular circulation around the townhomes and delivers seamless pedestrian connectivity throughout the residential campus, as well as enhanced walkability to surrounding commercial uses. Strolling along the community’s central paseo from a resort-style recreation center, pedestrians experience drought-tolerant landscaping, and end at a modernistic children’s playground. Designed for the future, this community powers 70% of its common area facilities with rooftop-mounted photovoltaics, and delivers fiber-optic telecommunications and smart home capabilities to every resident.
