PROJECT DETAILS

The completion of Twin Oaks adds 60 new units of Energy Star qualified homes to the HOPE VI Revitalization of Bluegrass Aspendale.

In this phase, there was tremendous effort in saving the large existing trees as well as providing new trees in and around the buildings to provide shade. The open green spaces exceeds the local zoning requirements.

These new homes feature brick and fiber cement siding for long term durability. The fiber cement siding is considered a green building product.

The development is within a quarter of a mile of a bus route, is interconnected to dedicated bike lanes, and bike racks will be installed in the parking lots for the residents.

Rather than piping downspouts directly to the storm sewer, they spill to grade, which benefits water quality by allowing the grass and landscaping to filter the water.
