The projects sets a new level of density for the small downtown area, and Rebecca Bryant worked closely with the developers to balance that density with both privacy and biophilia.

Fact Sheet

Our landscaping and site design will be certified as a “Backyard Wildlife Habitat,”

and complement the longleaf pine restoration underway at Knoll Park. Residents will have a front row seats for the annual migration of monarch butterflies and neotropical birds across the gulf.

Durability and ease of maintenance are also critical elements for potential homeowners.

Fortified Certification will allow homeowners to spend less time thinking about maintenance and utility bills,  and more time thinking about their next symphony on the bluff or First Friday artwalk with friends.
