New Town at St. Charles – TND

We were commissioned in early 2004 by Victor Barrett of New Urbanist Design to help in the design and production of construction documents for the first few phases of this wonderful Traditional Neighborhood Development. In an effort to create a place that doesn’t look like it was drawn by the same hand, New Urbanist Designs was working with the developer Whittaker Builders to solicited ideas and designs from several different design firms.

As described by Southern Living Magazine…”New Town at St. Charles isn’t for the suburban dweller looking for a big yard behind a privacy fence. The location is the suburbs, but it has the know-your-neighbors feel of a small town combined with inviting public spaces like those in Charleston or Savannah…New Town is divided into five pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods, each with a distinct town plaza, waterfront lots, and acres of green. Residents and visitors alike share the open-air skating rink in winter and stroll the plazas in summer…Think you might want to live in a community like New Town? You don’t have to move here―almost all of the amenities are open to the public. Wide sidewalks and narrow streets encourage you to park the car and explore. You’ll feel like a local before the day is through.”
