New Urbanist Development

One of my favorite suburban master-planned projects is I’on in South Carolina, in the “Lowlands” near Charleston. It’s an excellent  example of a New Urbanist project.   While it is unfortunately a “green field” development (not infill) and relies far too much on auto commutes, it is a beautiful place.  The buildings are traditional, but not afraid of innovation.  The streets are great to walk and there are excellent vistas set up to take advantage of the natural and less-natural features of the site.  I loved how the building sizes varied and how the “alleys” were nice enough for people to enjoy walking as well.  The pocket parks are interesting enough to make them destinations for a walk, but not too complex to over burden the HOA. By the way, if you visit, definitely stop at the Hominy Grill for some shrimp and grits…Incredible! – Renner

As you can see, the Community Gardens are a hit with the kids too, as well as the open park space in general. Please excuse my brevity – this was posted from my Android Phone. – Gerard
