Planned as a transit-friendly community, convenient to local commuter routes, this mixed-use, smart growth development has been annexed and integrated into the existing context of the historic city. A sense of place is created by a mix of housing types, lot sizes and the integral placement of open spaces. The connectivity of pedestrian and vehicular networks, natural systems and open spaces promote efficient movement for all transportation modes and increases access to nature and recreation. With more than 26 miles of paved paths and walkways and nearly 100 acres of wooded conservation areas, the highly amenitized community is sensitive to the theme of the surrounding area. The community has a clubhouse, tennis courts, pool house, fitness center, event lawn and marketplace.
EDSA incorporated traditional neighborhood design and conventional design principles in response to topographic constraints. Along with helping secure preliminary plan approvals, EDSA provided detailed landscape architecture services and guided implementation for the initial phases of the community.
