ABOUT POPLAR POINT PLACE
That make a great neighborhood
We started our site plans with the goal of making a first class park maximizing the recreation of the land and water while being sensitive to the existing wetlands, wildlife, and fauna. We then set about making a first class pedestrian neighborhood. Next we set out to create the interest and amenities that would make the area a first class destination for locals and visitors alike. We then shaped our buildings to create both the volume and uses that were in demand, financeable and sustainable. Lastly we reviewed the site plan and the buildings to ensure the site lines maximized both views, open space, and sense of place.
