Imagine downtown Pine Bluff, the regional neighborhood of choice for mixed-income households seeking the option of an urban lifestyle where they can walk or bike safely to work, school, church, shops, and lakeside recreation . . . and it’s affordable!
The goal of this study is to envision a Livability Improvement Plan for Willow Heights that triangulates economic feasibility with enhanced placemaking and building renovations to create a blended-income neighborhood.
Beyond simple infill development, housing serves as a place-making tool to anchor a nascent downtown arts district for Fayetteville, Arkansas.
The proposal reflects the green development philosophy outlined in The Rwanda National Strategy on Climate Change and Low Carbon Development.
The Habitat for Humanity neighborhood is designed as a sponge to work in accord with existing hydrological drainage, catchment, and recharge patterns.
The project addresses the departure of artists from Fayetteville with below market-rate housing for those who could not otherwise afford to live in the downtown.
