The city of Woodland's industrial zone spans its entrance portal. New market rate multifamily, affordable housing and retail is proposed in a mixed-use development to revitalize this urban edge. The triangular thirteen acre site is bound by cargo train tracks on two sides, that permits access only from an adjacent arterial street, presenting a challenging constraint. The proposed housing clusters explore the potential of courtyards as connectors and separators, countering the impact of surrounding large-scale industries. Environmental sustainability, resource conservation, passive solar design and storm water management are incorporated in the design concept.
