The Infill Story
Young professionals and locals looking for an urban, community-oriented lifestyle may soon have reason to start packing their bags with the possibility of Laurel Creek Village. An awesome example of repurposing underutilized space, this reno could be YUUUGE in addressing local housing woes. This proposed urban village would spawn from the current Atoll Business Center, the behemoth warehouse on Laurel Lane you didn’t know existed and recently was for sale at a cool $29M.
Imagine 600+ of your neighbors stepping out the door to a community garden, pool, tennis courts and walking trails. Paradise? Add in ~30K sf of commercial space (coffee, restaurant, brewpub, maker space) and you may never have to leave this urban utopia. Units would range from 385-1,155 sf and the greatest part (infill at its best for your planning nerds), infrastructure is already on site with more than sufficient parking, bike trails and rec facilities right nearby, and already in a higher density housing area. Check, check, check. Next stop, ARC on 2/12/18. #NIMBYsbegone
