Rochester Hills, Michigan
PEA completed all surveying, site engineering, and landscape design for a 35-acre lifestyle center proposed in the City of Rochester Hills. The project includes national and local retailers, residential condos, and rentals located above the retail center.
This project included a number of challenges. PEA needed to identify and design off-site stormwater detention that addressed both site and regional stormwater flooding issues. Additionally, PEA identified downstream sanitary sewer improvements necessary to address an existing capacity issue that if not fixed, would have halted construction indefinitely.
Surveying, tree survey, site engineering, landscape plans, entry landscape planting, private and public road design, graphics for use at meetings and easement preparation.
PEA was hired to transform a brownfield site into a multi-family condominium development with a commercial component. The property had previously been occupied by a large retail chain, but years of abandonment had left the site as an eyesore within the City of Taylor. We completed a site plan for the property, and provided all engineering and landscape architectural services.
The objective of the site plan was to group the condominium buildings to create a series of urban courtyards for interaction between residents. In addition, dense landscape buffers and ornamental walls were proposed to shield the residential development from its adjacent commercial neighbors. Amenities such as a gazebo, benches and ornamental lighting fixtures were also included to accentuate the development.
