Title: TOD at Gresham Crossings: Integrating Ecology and Mixed-Use Transit-Oriented Development
Author: Schlachter, Rena; Muller, Brook
Abstract: This interdisciplinary design studio focused on scenarios for multi-story, multi-unit transit oriented development for the 4.4 acre site, located across from Gresham Crossing in Gresham, OR. The studio program consisted largely of compact residential apartments and shared outdoor spaces that provide value for people and nonhuman inhabitants. This studio ultimately demonstrated that vibrant, dense development in an urban setting can provide green amenities and sustainable building features and infrastructure that benefit people and wildlife. The scenarios showcase these applications of low impact, nature-friendly, development practices for built structures, stormwater management and natural spaces.
