  • historic downtown manhatt an

    Manhatt an, Kansas rapid projected populati on growth will increase demand

    for housing and encourage the current trend of suburban sprawl into un-

    touched nati ve prairie. Outward expansion decreases populati on density,

    increases traffi c, and marginalizes older areas of town. Many of Manhatt ans

    downtown neighborhoods have not realized their full potenti al to accommo-

    date more residents, augment pedestrian and bike use, and enhance identi ty.

    identi ty- historic core

    The 9.2 acre project site located downtown reveals potenti al for infi ll de-

    velopment that could include mixed use, increased pedestrian mobility and

    enhanced identi ty for the neglected historic core of the city. Major improve-

    ments include widened sidewalks, designated bicycle lanes, extended store

    hours for buildings with shops on the fi rst oor and programmed commu-

    nity acti viti es.

    The proposed master plan capitalizes on the existi ng traditi onal infrastructure including the

    street grid and architectural character. Strategic architectural retrofi tti ng was planned based on

    historic preservati on requirements, existi ng building use, property values and desired mixed use

    percentage of the site. Phasing was determined by land value, profi tability and existi ng property

    ownership that would most effi ciently allow for the complete build out of the proposed plan.

    building bridges outdoor discovery

    Building Bridges Outdoor Discovery was a pro bono design-build project com-

    pleted during a summer internship at Golden Associates Landscape Architects.

    Conceptual design, dimensioning, sensory planti ng, irrigati on, details, plan and

    cost esti mate were included in the two-week design process. The 2,315 square

    foot courtyard atop Building Bridges Child Development Center was designed

    based on an environmental educati on program for infants and toddlers.

    Esti mated constructi on and material cost is $35,000.

    tally appropriate acti vity zones and features that can be implemented through

    phasing that allows the space to fully functi on at all stages of constructi on.

    Features include designated learning and play zones, art ti led and tree stump

    seati ng, bamboo playhouse, trike path, turf knoll, embankment slide, planter

    boxes and a sandbox water trough.

  • Conservati on Community Development of Manhatt an, Kansas

    stagg hill development

    Stagg Hill Development was a studio project exploring the possibility for a

    conservati on community located near the southwest city limit of Manhatt an,

    Kansas on 31.5 acres. Prairie restorati on, forest preservati on and stormwater

    management were focuses for the sustainable design. Major site features

    include 44 single family homes, 6 town homes, a community club house and

    recreati onal trails and pedestrian linkages.

    Earthwork Estimation: Average End Area Method

    stagg hill development

    Minimizing grading reduces the impact of human presence on the site while

    allowing the natural drainage to be sustained where possible. Minimiz-

    ing infrastructure costs was achieved by implementing best management

    practices such as bioswales and stormwater retention areas. Horizontal and

    vertical road alignment was necessary to site the primary and secondary

    roads within the development. Other services included in the scope were

    proposal writing and estimate of fees.
