Following on the heels of its CNU Charter Award, the mixed-use project is featured in the May 2008 issue of Professional Builder:
Infill development of single-family houses presents unique design challenges, but Sahota and Lowder saw the eight houses they would build as a critical part of the multi-use project they were planning in the neighborhood, Old Cloverdale. The quaint, cottage-style design they wanted for the homes and their amenities were affected by the lot sizes, restrictions and the surrounding neighborhood.
Single-family houses allowed Sahota and Lowder to make a smooth transition between the existing neighborhood, which has only single-family houses, and the office/retail and loft spacesgoing up on the grocery store's site.
"We knew from the beginning that this location in such a historic Southern neighborhood required careful transition from mixed-use to stand alone residential," said Sahota.
