From Marion Green:
Following in the footsteps of our Beacon Green project, we are pioneering an entirely new approach to small scale multi-family housing: The Courtyard Townhouse. These projects represent a huge step forward for infill development that we are hoping will supplant the typical “4-pack” auto-court projects that have dominated the market for the past 25 years. This new housing type mitigates the visual impact of the parking, provides generous open spaces, facilitates connections between neighbors, increases access to natural light, and creates a community center for all the residents to share.
The courtyard is the way in and out of the project. It’s the front porch for the rear units (and the back porch for the front units). Living rooms and kitchens look into the courtyard. Semi-private deck spaces for each unit ring the periphery, and the center of the court provides communal space for group events.
The project will provide five new townhomes. Three of the homes will be larger 3-4 bedroom units with 2 car garages. Unit 4 will be a small 2 bedroom unit with a one car garage. Unit 5 will be a 1 bedroom unit with no parking. It’s a project made up of units that are either in the top 20% or the lowest 20% in terms of size.
