CASE STUDY

RIVERSTONE​

Rising from a patchwork of orange, pistachio, almond and olive trees in southeast Madera County set before Sierra Nevada views, Riverstone is a 2,000-acre master-planned community where people of every generation enjoy the relaxed and informal spirit of the Golden State.

 

" Envisioned by WHA’s Community Planning & Design. "

 

Riverstone’s big ideas - which was inspired by its surrounding agrarian lands - is to celebrate the unique and endearing California lifestyle that’s woven all throughout the Central Valley in towns like Madera, Fresno and Clovis. Our creative work contributed to Riverstone’s recognition as the NAHB’s 2018 Master-Planned Community of the Year.

BOULEVARD

When you hear the word, you imagine the place. Boulevards are paved with action, street cred and constant motion from one spot to the next. It’s where synergy emanates from every surface, pulsating with a mix of free thinking, artistic expression and fresh perspectives.

 

" This sense of urban–framed in a suburban setting–lives at the core of Boulevard. "

 

Merging urbanity with the intimacy of a genuine neighborhood experience, this one-of-a-kind northern California master-planned community reflects the evolving dynamics of Dublin and the Tri-Valley area with a rich offering that brings forward all the elements of a great place—transit, residential diversity, social spaces and parks. Bold, vibrant and engaging with undeniable verve, Boulevard is the path to what’s next.

Overland

As one of the most popular relocation destinations in the country, Colorado is a magical, multifaceted place that holds a special allure. People flock to the Rocky Mountain State for big skies, endless views and healthier, more active living in the great outdoors. And more often than not these days, 


Northern Colorado has the greatest appeal. 

NoCo is becoming the place to settle in, raise a family and enjoy the same natural beauty that inspired mid-1800s-era settlers to cross the Great Plains to Colorado and stake their claims in a new frontier. Today’s modern-day pioneers can do just the same. In a town called Windsor, and in a new community called Overland.

Ladera Ranch

Ladera Ranch is a 4,000-acre master-planned community located on land once part of the ranch lands owned by  Rancho Mission Viejo characterized by rolling terrain, natural open space, arroyos, and distant mountain views.  At the time Rancho Mission Viejo sought to begin this project, major competition between other communities and builders required thoughtful design and strategic solutions.

" Ladera Ranch is the culmination of rich traditional and classic contemporary community design principles representative of the Golden Age of California. "


Unlike the competition, Ladera Ranch was geographically isolated and distanced from basic services. In order to be successful, Ladera would need to provide retail, schools, and other amenities. Also, the community had to be desirable and affordable to draw in prospective homeowners.
