Why THE PARK ON FIFTH Is Best For Our Neighborhood
SINGULAR TALLER STRUCTURE WITH FEWER UNITS MEANS DECREASED INTENSITY AND DENSITY
PROPOSED HEIGHT IN SCALE WITH THE SKYLINE AND IN CHARACTER WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD
WEST AVENUE NEEDS A PARK TO BECOME A NEIGHBORHOOD
CRESCENT HEIGHTS IS OFFERING TO ADD THE FIRST EVER POSSIBLE NEIGHBORHOOD PARK TO WEST AVENUE, DESIGNED AS A FIRST-CLASS LANDSCAPED PARK
MAXIMUM PARK AREA
PERMEABILITY IS OUR PRIORITY
ADDING AN ALTON RD LANE WITH ACCESS TO MCARTHUR CAUSEWAY
DESIGN SITE FOR A 5TH ST WALKING BRIDGE TO BE ADDED
ON-SITE PARKING ACCESSIBLE VIA FOUR SEPARATE ENTRY POINTS ON 6TH ST AND 7TH ST, WEST AVE, AND ALTON RD
WATER RETENTION AND MANAGEMENT ARE IMBEDDED INTO THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN
PROPOSED FLOORPLATE SIZE IN RELATION TO LAND IS THE SMALLEST AMONGST ALL EXISTING CITY TOWERS
"Introduce subtle landscape conditions to manage local stormwater drainage and retention to reduce the burden on surrounding pipes and pumps. Introducing basins and permeable surface areas (e.g., through porous ground cover, elevated decking) increases on-site holding and absorptive capacities. Additionally, the City should encourage new developments to maximize on-site permeable surfaces by reducing building footprints and elevating onto higher planes."
"Create zoning incentives for new developments to encourage projects designed with flood mitigation and resilience principles. As such, the city should put in place policies that require and/or reward adaptation efforts, including building beach buffers and dunes, ecological habitats, vegetated bioswales, additional on-site flood mitigation measures, and higher density infill developments on less vulnerable grounds. Where developments do not meet such requirements, the city should impose a resilience impact fee that is earmarked for resilience projects."
