PROJECT DETAILS

The Liberty Green HOPE VI revitalization of the 6 – block neighborhood was completed in two phases, transforming a 60-year old barracks style complex (approximately 700+ units), isolated from its surrounding neighbors, into a new mixed-income Energy Star certified neighborhood.

Following New Urbanism principles, the revitalization plan utilized a mixed land use pattern, accomplished by reestablishing the historic street pattern throughout the site, eliminating the “super-block” feel and re-instituting a more “walkable,” pedestrian-friendly environment. Streets were redesigned to be easily crossable and to a neighborhood scale, with the inclusion of small, neighborhood oriented parks located within short distances of the new housing. Curb cuts were relocated to more appropriate locations to improve safety, enhance accessibility and to further improve the neighborhood environment.

The Liberty Green plan incorporates a mix of ACC, LIHTC, Tax Credit, and Market Rate Homes. The wide range of housing types includes a mix of single family detached homes, attached homes, and small apartment buildings. The variety of housing types creates a diversity of scale and style along the neighborhood streets. Narrow neighborhood streets with small scale houses complement the larger external streets with mature trees, while small neighborhood parks provide the setting for townhomes.
