At the suggestion of the town planner, Union Studio was asked to amend a previously approved, typical suburban development masterplan and invent a new plan for Highfield Commons that increased housing density and exemplified sense of place and community in a more compact neighborhood. Lining both sides of the entry road with single-family housing, incorporating additional townhouse units and re-orienting the townhouse blocks to take advantage of the expanded community parks and intimate green spaces, Union increased housing density while preserving privacy and providing more indoor/outdoor livability. Walking trails meander around the perimeter of the site and provide a pedestrian connection to the parks and open spaces. The plan also includes a central community building to be used by town residents.
