East Shore Townhomes is a proposed development that will create a wonderful wooded enclave of 17 family homes. Children will be able to safely ride their bikes in the paved center driveways, watched from many living room windows, or play in their private back yards. The design maximizes significant tree preservation and orientation priorities, by directing development traffic away from the nearby church and out to 125th Avenue SE, while orienting pedestrian traffic and the development’s playground toward the church campus. Respecting large setbacks at the northwest, northeast and north property lines allows preservation of the strong wooded character of the site. Utilizing the Easement D driveway as the main site access connects the proposed homes with the neighboring community, fostering engagement with neighbors.
