FIRM PROFILE Dover, Kohl & Partners was founded in 1987. Our expertise lies in balancing the visionary ‘civic art’ of planning with the practical consensus building needed to make projects succeed. We are trained in the principles of sustainable town planning, and have perfected techniques for documenting and understanding local traditions in building to enhance each community’s sense of place. Our plans and codes focus on smart growth, sustainability, and emphasizing that there does not have to be a trade-off between livability, economic prosperity, and environmental concerns. Victor Dover and Joseph Kohl are charter members of the Congress for the New Urbanism and have worked for many public agencies, developers, and citizen groups to create appropriate methods of land development regulations. Victor Dover served on the LEED for Neighborhood Development Core Committee, and the Congress for the New Urbanism Board; both Joseph and Victor are founding members and on the Board of the Form-Based Codes Institute. The firm has produced and facilitated over 200 charrettes during the last decade. Dover-Kohl currently has a staff of 15, based in Coral Gables, FL. Our experience includes a national and international portfolio of work in a variety of settings. The common thread linking all of our projects is the holistic approach to community building, which includes the formation of complete settlements offering a mix of uses and dwelling types, an interconnected network of walkable streets, and building forms and architecture that reinforce the unique character of the place. We believe that design is the missing element in much of contemporary town planning, and our work centers on re-introducing form and design into master plans, policy and land development regulations. We create accessible strategies for sustainable development, specializing in plans and visualizations that focus on the physical aspects of future growth and conservation. Numerous Dover-Kohl projects have received American Planning Association (APA) Awards, including the Downtown Plan for Richmond, VA, the Downtown Plan and for Montgomery, AL, and the Jamestown Mall Area Plan in St. Louis, MO. The firm has also received Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) Charter Awards for I’On in Mount Pleasant, SC; City Plan 2025 for Fayetteville, AR; Glenwood Park in Atlanta, GA; and 2
the the Columbia Pike corridor in Arlington County, VA. The EPA awarded Plan El Paso a 2011 National Award for Smart Growth Excellence in Programs, Policies, and Regulations. Dover-Kohl’s work has received the Driehaus Form-Based Codes Award three times since its inception in 2007 for Towns, Villages, Countryside Land Development Regulations in St. Lucie County, Florida; the Compact Communities Code for Lee County, Florida; and the 2012 award for the Bradenton, Florida Form-Based Code. Our work has been published in Progressive Architecture, in Metropolitan Home, in numerous planning journals, and has been featured on National Public Radio, CNN’s Earthwatch, and in Business Week. Dover-Kohl projects have also been profiled in The New Urbanism by Peter Katz, Rural By Design by Randall Arendt, Sustainable Urbanism by Douglas Farr, Retrofitting Suburbia by Ellen Dunham-Jones, Form-Based Codes by Daniel Parolek, as well as Land Use Strategies and Public Participation Tools, both published by the Center for Livable Communities. Victor Dover and John Massengales’s new book, Street Design: The Secret to Great Cities and Towns, is on bookshelves now. Writing the book has helped the Dover-Kohl team reach a new understanding of the possibilities for streets in American cities in modern times. Dover Kohl especially understands how to preserve local distinctiveness and a sense of place while also enhancing usability for all modes of travel – pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit users – and creating great addresses.
As members of the Congress for New Urbanism, Dover, Kohl & Partners views “disinvestment in central cities, the spread of placeless sprawl, increasing separation by race and income, environmental deterioration, loss of agricultural lands and wilderness, and the erosion of society’s built heritage as one interrelated community-building challenge.” To meet this challenge we assist our clients in:
R ein ventin g Corridors
Revitalizing Downtowns & Historic Places
Making existing, in-town neighborhoods more desirable places to live, work or invest is the key to curbing outward sprawl. At the same time, suburbia can be made more livable and complete.
The world’s cities are rediscovering the heart of town. Physical design, organization, management, and promotion are all part of resuming work on the settlements already started and that’s the ultimate in “smart growth.”
Designing New Neighborhoods & Towns Dover, Kohl & Partners designs highly marketable new neighborhoods with places to live, work and shop within walking distance. These new traditional neighborhoods are more functional, efficient, enduring and memorable than routine subdivisions.
P l annin g Cities & Regions Metropolitan regions are the essential economic unit today, while environmental concerns call for stewardship of the even larger bio-region. The best new regional plans bridge the gap between close-up details and the big picture.
Great streets are rarely unintended. Most are the result of intentional design decisions made by visionary people, institutions, or communities. Balancing pedestrian and vehicular needs is essential to creating vibrant places where people and cars can coexist.
R etrofittin g Su b u r b ia
Shaping T ransit Oriented De ve lopment Creating compact, complete communities focused around transit has become a fast growing trend. Rising oil prices and traffic congestion are just two of the reasons driving the movement toward TOD.
Form Based Codes for Municipal & Private Clients Redevelopment opportunities and increasing market pressure to create value in urban areas has helped pave the way for mixed-use urban infill projects. These projects are creating safe and vibrant places where people can work and live.
Dover, Kohl & Partners is best known for detailed master plans, public design charrettes, and illustrative codes that emphasize complete neighborhoods as the basis for sound communities. Our combined experience, reaching over 28 years, has led to a unique understanding of the potential challenges facing new development and the latest solutions utilized in peer communities. Dover-Kohlâ€™s portfolio includes examples of infill or redevelopment of a single city block, as well as master plans that cover thousands of acres. While each project is different, our experience has been that maintaining quality urban design, using a collaborative multidisciplinary approach, and creating detailed implementation tools are the keys to success. 6

Neighborhood blocks can include urbane mixeduse / apartment buildings on major streets, with lower-intensity townhouse units on smaller streets.
Each neighborhood includes connections to the greater green / open space network.
The Mark Center Master Plan is an example of Dover-Kohl’s work in designing sustainable infill/ redevelopment strategies. In collaboration with Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company, Dover-Kohl was hired by The JBG Companies to create a Master Plan for the long-term redevelopment of their properties located in the Mark Center area of Alexandria, Virginia. Bisected by North Beauregard Street, the site contains approximately 2,900 garden-style apartment units dating from the late 1950s and a 63,320 square-foot retail center. The City of Alexandria initiated a Small Area Plan for the Beauregard Street corridor, which includes a large portion of JBG’s properties. The Small Area Plan was largely in response to the selection of Mark Center by the Department of Defense for the BRAC-133 (Washington Headquarters Service) project, which will add more than 6,400 employees to the Mark Center area in September 2011. This influx of new office workers will change the landscape of Alexandria’s West End, and has yielded a significant need to proactively plan for future land uses, development patterns, and transportation services in the area.
In parallel with the City’s process, The JBG Companies initiated a planning effort to establish a longterm vision for the future of its property that will be a model of Smart Growth and sustainable urban design principles, and that will work with the vision, goals, and principles of the Beauregard Corridor Plan to complement and enhance the greater Mark Center area. In May 2010, a multi-day public design workshop was conducted to investigate design options for the site and gather feedback from the Alexandria community. Plans and illustrations demonstrated how the site could evolve over time to include a mixture of uses (including housing for area workers), a network of streets, and connected open spaces and environmental systems.
The Town Center will contain the greatest mixture of uses along walkable streetscapes.
During 2011, Dover-Kohl worked with the JBG team, other area developers and their consultants, the City of Alexandria, the Beauregard Corridor Stakeholders Group (BCSG), and greater Alexandria community in a series of monthly public meetings to explore livable land use and transportations solutions for the Mark Center area. This process informed the Small Area Plan, which was unanimously approved in May 2012. Redevelopment of the JBG site is anticipated to be phased in over a 30-year period, with construction beginning on the first phase no sooner than 2015.
A Vision for JBG’s Mark Center Properties The Mark Center area is poised for a transformation, with planned high-capacity transit improvements as well as a recent BRAC decision to relocate over 6,000 federal employees to new office buildings in the near vicinity. This transformation can include a new, sustainable purpose for the JBG Mark Center properties. Preliminary goals for the future evolution of the site include:
JOHN ADAMS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
DORA KELLY NATURE PARK
• Provide a mixture of land uses arranged in a compact, walkable form to support ridership for the planned transit corridor along N. Beauregard Street.
• Provide housing for area employees to reduce commute times, improve quality of life for workers and residents, and benefit the environment by a reduction in vehicular miles traveled and air pollution.
• Restore environmental systems and green network connections, which can include enhancements to the Resource Protection Areas (RPAs), and connections to the City open space and trail systems. These will benefit residents of Mark Center and the greater Alexandria community.
WILLIAM RAMSAY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
WINKLER BOTANICAL PRESERVE
N RU ES LM ARK P
The Mark Center Master Plan is an opportunity to establish a holistic approach to the long-term evolution of the JBG properties into complete neighborhoods containing a mix of uses and housing choices; a compact, transit-oriented design; and interconnected networks of green spaces and walkable streets.
• Use new buildings and infrastructure to provide order and a sense of place.
Key Concepts on the draft Illustrative Plan A
A town center is located on the hilltop, including a public open space, grocery store, and mix of retail, office, hotel, and residential uses.
Street trees and on-street parking are located along major streets to define the street edge and create a walkable pedestrian realm.
Transit stops are planned to be located on N. Beauregard Street at neighborhood centers.
The Resource Protection Area (RPA) is returned to a natural state, providing a green connection between Holmes Run Park to the Winkler Preserve.
Off-street parking is lined with habitable space to create an attractive street frontage.
Stormwater treatment may include small retention greens and a larger pond downhill.
A continuous greenway is created through the neighborhoods, connecting Dora Kelly Nature Park to the Winkler Preserve.
Neighborhood-serving retail and smaller parks/plazas are located in the neighborhood centers.

Single family homes define the northern edge of the elliptical Glenwood Park. Second story porches were designed for maximum views.
Located just two miles east of downtown Atlanta, this 28-acre former industrial site has been transformed into a complete neighborhood featuring a traditional fine-grained mix of housing types, retail stores, office space, civic buildings, and recreational facilities. The neighborhood emphasizes the public realm and walkability with an interconnected network of pedestrian-friendly streets and green spaces. Glenwood Park, the project’s namesake, is a gathering place for the entire neighborhood, containing shade trees, a large play field, and a restored creek segment. The variety of housing types and choices provided at Glenwood Park can accommodate a variety of lifestyle and income groups. The architectural style is inspired by the best of Atlanta’s great historic neighborhoods. The Plan for Glenwood Park was completed in collaboration with Tunnell-Spangler-Walsh & Associates.
Small pedestrian paths create additional connections within the neighborhood where roadways are not possible due to topographical constraints.
Glenwood Park is the brainchild of Charles Brewer, former president of Mindspring.com, and founder of Green Street Properties. His vision was to create a nationally recognized model of responsible, sustainable development based upon the principles of New Urbanism. Dover, Kohl & Partners led an on-site charrette to formulate the main design concepts. The Master Plan, Development Standards, and Regulating Plan were completed in the months that followed.
Residents gather at Glenwood Park for the groundbreaking ceremony.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held in January 2003 for the commercial and residential components of the project. Since the ceremony, substantial parts of the neighborhood have been completed and what was once a bleak industrial landscape has been transformed into one of Atlanta’s most desirable neighborhoods. At complete build-out the neighborhood will include 425 residential units and 155,000 square feet of commercial space. Glenwood Park has received numerous awards for its resourceful land use, preservation of environmental resources, economic success, and innovative design, including the Congress for the New Urbanism Charter Award, 2003 and the Urban Land Institute Development of the Year, 2006.
Designing a new Complete, Connected, Mixed-use Neighborhood Glenwood Park This elliptical park is the projectâ€™s namesake and is a gathering place for the entire neighborhood.
Elementary School A new on-site elementary school will help to ease overcrowding in other local schools. The new school is configured as a compact neighborhood-friendly campus, with outdoor play areas surrounded by classroom buildings.
Single-Family Homes Larger single-family lots are found at the periphery of the site, to transition to existing adjacent neighborhoods.
Apartment Buildings Larger apartment and mixed-use buildings front Glenwood Memorial Connector. Street-oriented building design, together with wide sidewalks, onstreet parking, and street trees will tame this busy thoroughfare into a trafficcalmed signature neighborhood street. Townhomes Glenwood Park features a wide variety of housing choices, including affordable attached townhomes.
Mixed-Use Buildings Apartments and offices are located above retail storefronts.
Brasfield Square This square is central to the neighborhoodâ€™s shopping area. Brasfield Square is planted with formal rows of trees, and is fronted by multi-story mixeduse buildings.
From Vision to Built Result
As part of the Master Planning effort, the Dover-Kohl team produced visualizations to explain key project ideas. The above aerial rendering envisioned the proposed form and massing for the entire neighborhood, including the variety of building types and public open spaces. Below are a few examples of the new streets and buildings that resulted from this detailed urban design vision.
5401 North integrates a mixture of civic, retail, office, institutional, and residential uses in a cohesive manner, creating a memorable, highly walkable place.

The Project Large-footprint office buildings are integrated into the fine-grain urban framework through the use of pedestrian-scaled architectural treatments and street-oriented entrances and windows.
5401 North is planned to be a 390 acre, mixed-use settlement located in the fast-growing Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill region of North Carolina. The site is approximately 7.5 miles northeast of Downtown Raleigh. The new settlement at 5401 North will contain a diverse mix of uses, including civic, retail, office, institutional, and residential components. With a high level of non-residential uses, including a grocery store, technical college, movie theater, and more, this project will become a complete Town Center for residents and a true destination for the surrounding area. Assisting in the creation of the plan were Walter Kulash, PE, Robert Sharp, Architect, Chael, Cooper & Associates, Sottile and Sottile, Kimley-Horn and Associates, Tony M. Tate Landscape Architecture, and Withers & Ravenel.
In November 2008, Dover, Kohl & Partners led an on-site charrette to create a master plan for 5401 North. The team carefully studied the surroundings and analyzed local precedents to inform the design of the new settlement. The team worked with the client, Commercial Properties Realty Trust, throughout the week to ensure that the master plan was aligned with the vision for the site. Within residential areas, public greens are fronted by homes. These civic spaces can provide a place for children to play and may also be designed for stormwater retention purposes.
A mix of uses are planned for all neighborhoods within 5401 North. Above is a view down a residential street; a corner store at the end of the street provides daily conveniences for residents.
During the charrette, the client and the design team defined five central planning principles to guide the future development of 5401 North. As the key elements that shaped the plan, these planning principles provide a vision that respects the best of Raleigh’s traditions and establishes standards for the design of the new neighborhoods, homes, civic and commercial buildings, and public spaces. Specifically, these principles require the settlement to be sustainable; complete, compact, and connected; street smart; civic-anchored; and joined to nature. Being sustainable involves using the land efficiently with mixed-use, walkable neighborhood forms. Complete, compact, and connected neighborhoods have a mix of uses and housing options, well-connected to each other and their surroundings. Settlements that are ‘‘street smart’’ contain an interconnected network of well-designed streets that create unique addresses for new homes and businesses. Civic-anchored settlements feature prominently located and graciously designed public buildings. Being joined to nature means incorporating a sequence of green elements throughout the plan, providing connections to natural amenities and softening neighborhood edges.
On April 6, 2011, the Raleigh City Council approved the plan for 5401 North. Construction of site infrastructure has begun; an initial phase of homes and offices is slated to begin in 2015.

The Wheeler District is a new community in the center of Oklahoma City, located along the southern bank of the Oklahoma River less than two miles from the downtown. The 180 acre site was previously the Downtown Airpark and Capital Hill, a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood, is located just south of the site. Wheeler District is in an ideal location to connect Oklahoma City both north and south of the river, as well as east and west to its adjacent neighborhoods. The Wheeler District is a new urban village that will grow over time to become the most walkable, bikable neighborhood in the region that focuses on family and modern pioneers with a range of housing options and building types not available elsewhere in the City. An interactive public charrette was held in July 2014 to gather community input and to lay the groundwork for the urban village. Outreach and marketing efforts were extensive, with the client and consultant team working together to gain momentum in the community for months prior to the main charrette events. Efforts included public events such as a book signing by Victor Dover, a ULI community bike ride, and informal community gatherings. Community turn-out was immense, with over three hundreds participants providing their input. Many of the suggestions provided by the public support the early vision for the site, confirming the need of a walkable, bikable urban destination in Oklahoma City. Dover, Kohl & Partners served as the lead consultant for the planning team. Other team members included Hall Planning & Engineering (multimodal transportation planning), Crabtree & Associates (stormwater management), The Street Plans Collaborative (bicycle planning), TetraTech (civil engineering), and Barta Bailey (marketing) to have a holistic view of the project with the intention of quickly moving forward in implementation.

Framed streetscapes focus on downtown views
The Hangar District provides a plaza, courtyard space, and public meeting points.
Wheeler District Wards
A True Mixed-Use Community Within the site, there are three distinct wards with varying characteristics and a variety of uses:
A C B
Big Themes 1. Made for Walking & Biking
Wheeler will make walking and biking the primary modes of transportation through an interconnected series of streets, shared spaces (sometimes called woonerfs), alleys and trails that connect through and around Wheeler District.
2. Evolving Gracefully Over Time
The Wheeler District is planned with longevity in mind. The emphasis will be on slowly growing the community so that every time a new phase or project is built it will make the existing community more complete and feel more connected. Growing over time also means that some short term projects may begin quickly creating a foundation to be built upon later.
The Wheeler District will be built around a framework of people-friendly public spaces. Connected neighborhoods contain a network of people friendly streets which evenly distribute the many modes of travel. Green elements and public spaces will provide communal meeting spaces, access to open amenities, long views and maintaining a pedestrian-friendly atmosphere.
5. Energizing the Riverfront
The riverfront will be a premier destination to view and experience the City in a new way. Existing bike trails along the river provide additional pedestrian and bike connections to the larger community. Public spaces along the Riverfront, such as the Ferris Wheel will draw one’s attention towards Wheeler District.
3. Full of Varied, Cool Places to Live 6. Compact, Complete & Connected Wheeler District will provide opportunities to live, work, play and learn within one complete environment. These varying uses will benefit from proximity to one other, each in turn making the others more valuable. Collaborative environments, a diversity of housing types and public meeting spaces are created in communities where people can interact in both organized and informal ways.
Most people will arrive at the Wheeler District from the North along Western Avenue. The centerpiece to the Wheeler District’s riverfront will be a lively urban plaza, that is anchored by a festive Ferris Wheel. Larger buildings face major streets and spaces including the river and Western Avenue.
B 4. People-Friendly Public Spaces
Wheeler District is designed with the intention of becoming a traditional compact neighborhood, distinct from other neighborhoods in Oklahoma City. It will be complete, meaning that within a few minutes walk you can find a lot of life’s basic daily needs. By building a complete, compact and connected neighborhood, close in to the city center, people are given an option besides driving long distances every time they need to do something.
The Hangar District takes advantage of the history of the site, making use of the historic Hangar and terminal building. This District has the potential to be a major community center, with space for an urban farm community garden, a maker’s space village, and an open biergarten for public gatherings.
A sequence of framed views in the Eastern portion of the site leads people step-bystep toward the riverfront with a focus on Downtown views. A roundabout at the northern and southern ends of the site along Western Avenue splits the traffic flow to a series of smaller streets that run through the site. The street network within this ward contains numerous slow, narrow streets, sometimes called woonerfs, that have a focus on bikes and pedestrians as the primary users while still allowing access to vehicles.

An aerial view looks across the Arkansas River to the South Main neighborhood. The South Main Square in the foreground, serves as a central gathering place in the new neighborhood.
As competitive kayakers and avid outdoor enthusiasts, the founders of South Main envisioned their property as an environmentally-friendly new neighborhood that would provide public access to both the riverfront and a world-class whitewater park. Dover, Kohl & Partners, with the assistance of Swift and Associates, created the Master Plan for the property, which connects the Town of Buena Vista to the Arkansas River. Neighborhood streets are oriented to create views to the mountains as well as to the riverfront. The South Main Square, which abuts a new riverfront park, is surrounded by mixed-use buildings, and provides a central gathering space for residents and visitors. The plan also features a variety of sustainable elements including a mix of uses and housing types, employing locally-influenced, time-tested architecture. The high sense of spatial enclosure and other traffic-calming measures along this pedestrian-dominant street promote low vehicular speeds, allowing pedestrians to move freely throughout the space.

During a week-long charrette in September 2004, numerous citizens and stakeholders of Buena Vista helped shape the vision for the property. The founders, along with local residents, town leaders, and the design team worked collaboratively to formulate design concepts. Key principles established during the charrette include: maintaining public access to the river, creating a high-quality riverfront space; establishing visual and physical connections with Main Street and downtown Buena Vista, and creating a walkable environment through a mixture of uses and network of pedestrian connections. To ensure that the vision for South Main was realized, Development Standards were prepared to accompany the plan.
Status The neighborhoodâ€™s park system includes a mountain-sensitive palette of native landscaping, reducing the need for irrigation.
The Master Plan and corresponding Development Standards were approved in 2005. Construction is well underway, and businesses are now established in the growing neighborhood. The river corridor running through the South Main property was donated to the Town of Buena Vista as permanent, public parkland. With the assistance of a state grant, numerous improvements to the river and trail network have been completed. A second grant has provided funding for several recreational climbing boulders throughout the neighborhood.
A Growing Town
Front porches reinforce a strong sense of community and take advantage of cool summer breezes.*
Residents and visitors gather along the river for a kayaking event.
South Main’s architecture is built in the mountain vernacular tradition found in Buena Vista and surrounding towns such as Salida, CO.
The Eddy Line restaurant, located along South Main Street, is a popular nighttime destination and helps invigorate the neighborhood in the evening.*
New climbing boulders provide a great recreational opportunity for residents and visitors*
Corner buildings with chamfered edges and a clock tower form a signature entrance to one of the neighborhood’s most intimate streets.
Vegetable gardens transform a backyard setting, and are a reflection of the community’s pursuit of greater sustainability.
Narrow, pedestrian-dominant, cobble-stoned streets are part of the neighborhood’s rich menu of walkable street types.
The neighborhood’s layout takes advantage of surrounding views and natural amenities.*
A new public park and trail system along the neighborhood’s Arkansas River frontage was built and donated to the town.
Well-designed, well-crafted architecture and distinctive street fixtures are essential to creating a quality sense of place.*

The houses known as “The Three Sisters” share a repetitive, neoclassical building style and are inserted between the site’s existing live oak trees. The result is a mature and stately street scene.
I'On, the first new traditional neighborhood to be built amongst the conventional residential subdivisions in Mt. Pleasant, SC, is one of Dover-Kohl’s most celebrated projects. Recognized nationally for its thoughtful planning, this compact neighborhood resuscitates the tradition of building in relationship with the natural environment. The site is situated between quarried lakes and fresh water sloughs that lead to the saltwater marshes of Hobcaw Creek and the Charleston Harbor. In response to this spectacular setting, homes and civic buildings have been built in the classic architectural style of the Lowcountry and are located along canals and footbridges, tidal creeks, lakes and expanses of saltwater marsh. As a traditional and complete neighborhood, I’On is designed to include a range of dwelling sizes, a mix of uses, civic buildings, green spaces, and an interconnected street network. The Plan was designed in partnership with Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company and other consultants, including Glatting Jackson, Seamon Whiteside + Associates, Zimmerman/Volk Associates, and Peter Katz.
A mix of unit types, including townhomes and single family homes, are included within each neighborhood.
A seven-day charrette was conducted with a fifteen member design team and the developers. Meetings with elected officials, government staff, and neighbors were conducted in the charrette work space. On a study tour prior to the charrette, the design team analyzed the building types and neighborhoods of Savannah, GA, Charleston, SC, and several other historic towns, then adapted their design conventions for the new neighborhood.
Implementation and Status
Canals connecting East and West Lakes provide an intimate setting for residences.
Initial plans included an urban, diverse village of over 1,200 units, including a mix of uses, multi-family homes, and rented residences, though plans were modified at the Town of Mt. Pleasant’s request to a buildout of 769 single family homes, a village square, and locations for churches and schools. Site work began in 1997 and more than 700 homes have been completed or are under construction. Homes range from 960 to 7,500 square feet, and in price from the mid $400,000s to $2,000,000+. The commercial center of the neighborhood, I’On Square, has been built and the majority of parks and civic buildings, including the prominent Mt. Pleasant Ampitheater, have been completed.
A Sustainable, Award-Winning Community I’On has won numerous awards for its innova-
tive design, including Best Community in the Nation and Best Smart Growth Neighborhood by Professional Builder magazine and the National Association of Home Builders, as well as a Charter Award from the Congress for the New Urbanism in 2003. I'On was also the site of the 7th Annual LIFE Magazine Dream House and was featured in Bob Vila's Home Again. “In I’On, a South Carolina town patterned after historic Charleston, lots selling for $66,000 seven years ago now fetch $318,000, more than double the rate of appreciation for lots in the region.” – SmartMoney, August 2005 “Named in honor of Jacob Bond I’On, former mayor of Sullivan’s Island, president of the South Carolina State Senate, and War of 1812 hero, this community seeks to create a pleasing mix of outdoor spaces connected by pedestrian-friendly streets.”
– Southern Living Favorites, 2004 “It’s the sort of pedestrian-friendly, intimate place that people long thought couldn’t be built today.” Holy Ascension Orthodox Church
Residents gathering for a holiday celebration
– Coastal Living, March-April 2004 “I’On is a ‘neotraditional’ development. It turns its back on standard suburban design, instead trying to recreate the best features of the intown neighborhoods we remember from childhood.”

Visualizing change through charrette planning
Above: Plan and rendering depicting the transition from existing single family homes (foreground) to buildings of a greater intensity proposed along the Pike.
An important element of planning for the Pike corridor has been visualizing change through illustrative plans and renderings that apply Plan goals to actual streets, properties, and public spaces. Created as part of the charrette process, community members used these images to evaluate if the goals illustrated were appropriate to achieve their vision and gave quality feedback. This process helped to define priorities, evaluate alternatives, and refine Plan ideas. The Form-Based Codes for both the mixed-use nodes and surrounding residential neighborhoods were informed by these illustrations and give predictability to the built results.

WALKABLE STREET DESIGN Hall Planning & Engineering, Inc. is a multimodal transportation planning and engineering firm specializing in multiple practice areas within the transportation profession. Richard A. (Rick) Hall, P.E., CNU, and HPE President, is a registered professional engineer in 19 states. Based on his extensive transportation planning and conceptual design experience, the firm focuses on both Planning and Preliminary Engineering, especially the vital interface between Planning and Design. Multimodal transportation aspects of community plans, subarea/sector plans and corridor studies are key HPE emphasis areas. Expert witness, public participation and charrette tasks are routinely performed by HPE and traffic engineering, site impact studies and private and public growth management related studies are also special skills. Other practice areas of the firm include hurricane evacuation studies and specialty data collection (e.g. origin-destination and trip generation studies). A core planning principle for HPE is to incorporate multimodal planning elements into every project. The firm believes multimodalism begins with walking. Therefore, HPE designs walkable transportation systems that not only serve to move automobiles efficiently but also to safely accommodate pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users. This focus on walkability and land use-based transportation leads HPE to design thoroughfares for individual projects that are multimodal and context sensitive.
Rick Hall built HPEâ€™s engineering practice over the last fifteen years to perform transportation consulting for engineering and planning projects with emphasis on transforming conceptual plans into preliminary engineering designs. The firm, under his direction, performs corridor studies, traffic engineering studies, walkable neighborhood transportation system designs, Level of Service analyses, hurricane evacuation analyses, parking analyses and conceptual roadway design. Mr. Hall has published research on augmenting the functional classification system for defining walkable neighborhood thoroughfares, taught walkable neighborhood transportation design at numerous short courses and conferences, led development of HPEâ€™s Walkability Index (applied at the block face level, the Walkability Index measures the propensity for pedestrian, bike and transit use in urban communities) and has applied walkable principles to urban community street designs in over a dozen states and four countries. HPE staff has worked throughout the nation and has participated in over 80 charrettes and design workshops, yielding new or revitalized, livable communities. The company is located in Tallahassee, Florida.

HPE RESPONSIBILITY: Conceptual Transportation Design and Traffic Analysis CLIENT’S NAME & ADDRESS: Walt Martin Associated Developers 68 1/2 Queen St Charleston, SC 29401 (843) 724-3299
Hall Planning & Engineering, Inc. participated as the transportation subconsultant in a charrette to prepare a master plan for Long Savannah, a new community in Charleston, SC. The design for this private development followed traditional neighborhood design principles. HPE addressed ways transportation systems serving the town could be designed to enhance the walkability of the area. This was done by targeting pedestrian improvements to all the public places including streets and squares. One major goal was to facilitate efficient automobile travel among an excellent pedestrian environment. Street crosssections were developed and approved by the City of Charleston for future implementation. Total

HPE also prepared a traffic analysis to address the traffic growth expected by the development of Long Savannah. The traffic study applied elements of walkability and traditional town design to conventional vehicular trip generation techniques to produce a realistic estimate of future traffic. This traffic was then distributed onto the existing external thoroughfare network to ensure there would be no negative impacts on the surrounding infrastructure.

Washington Headquarters Services (WHS) - W+A provided traffic analysis and traffic design services for a 1.7 million square foot building for the relocation of Sixty-four-hundred (6,400) government employees from various Northern Virginia locations to Mark Center as part of the federallymandated Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process. Planning for the WHS transportation infrastructure included a new transit/visitor center, enhanced bus transit services, a remote inspection facility (RIF), widening of Seminary Road and North Beauregard Street, traffic signal system improvements at four (4) locations, a roundabout, and 3,900 structured parking spaces. Working with the design build team, traffic signal, pavement marking and signing, maintenance of traffic, and security signal system designs were prepared. The security signal system intergraded pop up barriers, gate arms, vehicle heads and overhead lane control equipment through traffic controllers interconnected to the buildings Security Operation Center.
The Exchange - W+A provided localized traffic and shared parking analyses for the Exchange at Potomac Yard, a Town Center project with approximately 900,000 square feet of office space, 105,000 square feet of retail (including a grocery store) space, 624 multi-family residential units, and 170 hotel keys. The shared parking analysis was completed to ensure just enough parking was provided for the project. In addition, the study reviewed case studies that lowered the code required residential and grocery store parking. The parking analysis also reviewed the parking required for office users given the implementation of an aggressive transportation demand management (TDM) program and great transit service, in the end reducing the total number of spaces than required by code. Beauregard Small Area Plan and Rezoning – W+A participated in land use and transportation planning for a stakeholder initiated Small Area Plan (SAP) along the Beauregard Corridor. The SAP includes over 9.0 million square feet of office, retail, hotel and residential uses. As part of the plan, a network of streets for seven newly created urban neighborhoods was developed with early alternative network analyses leading to the creation of an “Ellipse” as an improvement to the heavily traveled Seminary Road and Beauregard Street intersection. The plan also reviewed transit alignments and future stations between the Van Dorn Metro and Columbia Pike. Victory Center - W+A provided traffic forecasts,
analyses, site planning, parking design, and transit, pedestrian, and bicycle facilities review. Victory Center currently consists of over 500,000 square feet of space with build-out consisting of 1.0 million square feet in three buildings served by two structured parking garages.
Cameron Park - W+A provided transportation planning services to redeveloped the project into a mixed-use project that will consist of 37,000 square feet of ground floor retail, two residential buildings consisting of 391 multi-family units and 66 townhouses. The project is located at the southeast quadrant of S. Pickett Street and Edsall Road/ Cameron Station Boulevard in the City of Alexandria, Virginia.

COCOA BEACH GATEWAYS MASTER PLAN, Cocoa Beach, Florida, 2014 Cocoa Beach has remained relatively untouched for several decades, surviving on outside attractors like the Space Shuttle Program. Now the City wants to be "Open for Business" and attract new growth to its commercial areas to attract more vistors and increase its tax base. Pamela led the effort as Project Director to create the Gateways Master Plan. The resulting vision redefines SR 520 as a primier east-west corridor connecting the Banana River to the Ocean with a multiway boulevard. The plan lays out a path to revise fine tune development regulations allowing redevelopment to occur. SEVEN50, THE PROSPERITY PLAN FOR SOUTHEAST FLORIDA, 2012-2014 Seven50 is the plan for the seven counties of Southeast Florida for the next fifty years. The region includes 121 municipalities and over six million people. Plan creation involved over 5,000 people participating in a series of regional summits and local workshops and over one million people via an interactive website. Pamela was a primary corridinator for all public events and was the principal editor of the Seven50 Prosperity Report. Seven50 was funded by the US Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities and was featured on National Public Radio and in The New York Times. EL PASO COMPREHENSIVE PLAN, El Paso, Texas, 2010-2012 Pamela assisted in and managed the production of over 250 square acres in El Paso while working on the Comprehensive Plan for the City. Pamela was the primary writer for the Urban Design Element and head editor for the overall document. Connecting El Paso Plan was a first step in the comprehensive planning initiative and was unanimously approved by the El Paso City Council and was awarded a 2011 National Award for Smart Growth Excellence by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The complete comprehensive plan has been submitted to the City for estimated approval by May 2012. JAMESTOWN MALL AREA PLAN, St. Louis County, Missouri, 2010 Jamestown Mall, located in north St. Louis County is in decline. As project director, Pamela led the team in an effort to find ways to redevelop the mall property in a way that is sustainable and a benefit to the surrounding community. The area plan shows the transformation of the mall parking fields into a diverse walkable, mixed-use village center. WEST FAIRVIEW AVENUE, Montgomery, Alabama, 2010 The plan proposes transforming the avenue, an auto-dependent strip of commercial uses, into a “main street” with pedestrian provisions like sidewalks, street trees, benches, awnings and on-street parking and encouraging a greater variety of street-oriented civic and retail uses. The plan was designed in conformance with the City’s existing form-based code overlay for ease of implementation and included a Transect map for the study area. Pam served as project manager for this effort. THE BLUEPRINT FOR SPRINGHILL AND OVERLAY ZONING ORDINANCE, Mobile, Alabama, 2007 The Blueprint for Spring Hill outlines the necessary steps to create much-needed walkable centers for this gracious district of Mobile. The plan identified three key commercial intersections and demonstrated their evolution over time from auto-oriented strip shopping centers into memorable meeting places. Pam served as project manager for this effort.

schedule & availability
schedule & AVAILABILITY
Dover, Kohl & Partners carefully selects the projects with which we are involved; we do this so that we can focus our energy on the right kinds of projects, allowing us the ability to provide the highest level of personal service to our clients. We recommend to use a charrette-based planning approach, working on-site for a week with Aimco, our team members, and potentially community stakeholders to define the key elements of the plan. We typically conduct one charrette per month; currently, our first available openings to conduct a Design Charrette in Alexandria is November 2015 or January 2016. Preliminary Master Plan work products (as decribed in our work plan) typically require 4 - 6 weeks after the charrette for completion. Depening on the date selected for the charrette, the tentative schedule outlined in your RFP may need to be adjusted. We will refine our proposed project approach and schedule in coordination with Aimco; team resources and personnel will be properly dedicated to drive the successful and timely completion of the project.
The following draft work plan outlines the Dover, Kohl and Partnersâ€™ (DKP) team approach to assisting Aimco with schematic design and entitlement support for the 80-acre Foxchase Apartments site.
This work plan has been divided into three phases. Phase 1 will result in the creation of a Preliminary Master Plan for the future redevelopment of the site. Phase 2 includes additional plan refinement, and participation in meetings with stakeholders, the community, and City of Alexandria as part of the regulatory approvals process. Phase 3 (optional) entails additional, on-going services to assist with project implementation to achieve the established vision for the site. Our preliminary understanding of necessary tasks, background information and resulting work products associated with each of these phases is described in the following pages. The goal is to provide design consultation, drawings, exhibits, and participation in meetings with stakeholders, other consultants and public entities as necessary to develop a Master Plan that will guide the successful redevelopment of the Foxchase Apartments site. We look forward to the opportunity to discuss this work plan and our proposal in detail with Aimco at the appropriate time; please consider this a draft.
Compelling Plans & Visualizations
Phase 1 â€“ Schematic Design Phase 1 will result in the creation of a Preliminary Master Plan and illustrations to guide the design and future redevelopment of the Foxchase Apartments site. It will include a two trips to Alexandria for on-site analysis and design by members of the Dover-Kohl team, and has been divided into two sub-phases: Analysis and Design Charrette / Master Plan.
Phase 1A: Analysis 1. Review Relevant Base Information
The Dover-Kohl team will request from Aimco certain information that may be used to analyze the site. Dover-Kohl will rely on the accuracy of this information as the basis for making certain fundamental assumptions about the site. Dover-Kohl agrees to keep all Aimco-provided information confidential and used solely for this Project. Dover-Kohl will request the following base information: a. Scale base information for the site that indicate existing conditions, such as significant features both above and below the ground, environmental constraints, drainage analysis, utility locations, topography, and any other physical limitations of concern. This information should be in digital format (GIS or CAD). b. Aerial photographs that depict the site and its surroundings in plan view, preferably in color, at the largest possible scale. (1 inch = 100 feet or larger) c. Record documents, such as site engineering plans, building plans, road plans, utility design plans, and similar documents. d. Current land development regulations that affect the site, particularly those that constrain zoning, land use, or development envisioned by the project. e. Local zoning approvals and restrictive covenants that may relate to the site. f. Relevant site studies, including previous zoning or land use studies, traffic and parking studies, infrastructure studies, soil reports, environmental
Successful Results (Glenwood Park, Atlanta, GA)
studies or mitigation plans, and market feasibility studies for the site and its surroundings. (In addition to any studies supplied, W+A will provide current existing peak hour traffic data including pedestrian and bicycle trips at ten key study intersections within the Foxchase community.) g. Other appropriate documentation of the site, such as background on the existing buildings, historical information, and any pro forma, market analysis, demographic information or development program. All base information should be complete and delivered to the Dover-Kohl team at least 2 - 4 weeks prior to the start of the Design Charrette. DoverKohl will examine the base information provided and review any preliminary concerns provided by Aimco. The Dover-Kohl team will assemble the base information into an AutoCAD base map for use during the Design Charrette.
WORK PLAN 2. Site Visit
A Principal and Project Director from Dover-Kohl will join local members of the consultant team (WLP and W+A) to conduct a 1 – 2 day site visit. The purpose of the visit is to become familiar with the site and its surrounding context, and to meet with Aimco to determine development objectives and the initial vision for the Site. Specific components will include: a. Preliminary Site Analysis. Dover-Kohl team members will tour the Site with representatives from Aimco, examining the existing urban form of the site and surrounding areas. The analysis will include an examination of the existing land use, density, and urban design elements such as the network of streets, blocks and lots, building types, and building form. The Dover-Kohl team will walk and drive the site to better understand the existing conditions of the property. During this time, the team will photograph and take note of important features of the site, such as views and viewsheds, unique environmental conditions, and opportunities for pedestrian and vehicular connectivity. b. Charrette Logistics. Dover-Kohl will meet with Aimco to determine the specific format and schedule of the Design Charrette (see Task 3). c. Interviews and Meetings. The Dover-Kohl team will meet with Aimco to review base information, any studies completed to date (such as market or site conditions, and the anticipated entitlement process) and to discuss project goals and objectives. The meeting will include a review of the Dover-Kohl team’s initial impressions of the Site, and discussion of preliminary plan concepts. During the site visit, Dover-Kohl will also be available to meet with other stakeholders, as deemed necessary by Aimco. Initial interviews, presentations, and meetings may be scheduled to discuss overall project goals and objectives. All meetings will be arranged by Aimco.
3. Preparation for Design Charrette
Dover, Kohl & Partners will work in close consultation with Aimco to determine the planning process, including the appropriate level of community/ stakeholder involvement. For many of our developer clients, an extensive public process is not necessary. In this case, we recommend partial / selective community involvement, through a “conference room” style charrette format. The design effort would focus solely on client / consultant team interaction. The conference room charrette would allow Aimco to invite and include the necessary parties that they feel would be appropriate. Dover-Kohl will devise a schedule for the Design Charrette in coordination with Aimco, and work together to schedule any necessary stakeholder meetings. Based on our experience, we recommend a work session of at least 5 – 7 days. This timeframe provides opportunities for multiple client/design team feedback loops, which will allow plan concepts to be quickly and efficiently advanced to a sufficient level of detail while on-site. Defining the vision and primary planning concepts collaboratively will facilitate the production of detailed and coordinated work products.
4. Traffic Analysis
W+A will conduct a localized review of traffic conditions, that could also be used for a SAP and rezoning submissions (see details on the following page). The results of the data collection and analyses will be used during the Design Charrette/Preliminary Plan preparation and eventually documented in a technical report suitable for use with later submission requirements to the City of Alexandria.
traffic study A localized traffic study will be conducted by W+A to inform the master planning process. A comprehensive Multimodal Transportation Study is required to file a new Small Area Plan (SAP) and/or amendment to an existing SAP in the City of Alexandria. The City may decide to conduct their own process for a new SAP, including traffic studies. The materials produced as part of this planning process could be expanded, if needed, to serve the SAP/rezoning traffic study requirements (as part of Phase 3 services). Following approval of the master plan/SAP and as site plans are submitted, a localized traffic study will be required with a Development Special Use Permit (DSUP) application. The proposed localized traffic study will include:
Data Collection and Background Data Research 1. Review the existing roadway network and traffic controls, development program, development schedule, as well as any other pertinent background information related to the proposed development.
Traffic Analysis 1. Calculate existing baseline peak hour levels of service at the key intersections.
2. Review the near-by Landmark/Van Dorn SAP, Duke Street/ Eisenhower Avenue High Capacity Corridor (Corridor B) Study, the Cityâ€™s Transportation Master Plan, and other transportation studies and relevant background information provided by the team.
2. Estimate the number of new AM and PM peak hour trips that would be generated by the project based on: (a) the proposed development program, (b) Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) trip generation rates/equations, (c) internal trip estimates, if any, (d) estimates of pass-by trips for commercial uses, and (e) estimates of the percentage of all trips that will be made by public transportation or some other non-auto mode.
3. Conduct a field review with the DKP team whereby existing uses, access points, adjacent properties, roadway characteristics, bicycle, transit, and pedestrian facilities will be noted.
3. Estimate the net new trips that would be generated by the project as the difference between trips generated by the proposed development and existing traffic counts.
4. Conduct existing weekday AM and PM peak hour vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle counts at ten (10) key study intersections. Traffic counts will be conducted from 6:00 to 9:00 AM and 4:00 to 7:00 PM on a typical weekday when area public schools are in session, during non-holiday weeks. The traffic count data will provide base operating conditions to assess network changes/ additions and opportunities for complete streets implementation.
4. Assign net new site-generated trips to the public and planned street network.
5. Identify existing bus routes and ridership information. 6. Obtain signal timing/phasing plans from the City for critical study area intersections.
5. Add site-generated trips to existing trips providing total future traffic forecasts at the study intersections for build-out traffic conditions. 6. Evaluate total future AM and PM peak hour levels of service at the study intersections using HCM analysis methodologies. Alternative traffic analyses will be provided as master plan activities are being completed during Design Charrette. 7. Identify the anticipated entitlement process with regard to transportation items. 8. Prepare traffic analyses as needed and as a result of changes resulting from stakeholder meetings and presentations (TBD). 59
Phase 1B – Design Charrette & Preliminary Master Plan 4. The Charrette
The Dover-Kohl design team (including a Principal, Project Director, Lead Illustrator, and 4 town planners/ designers from Dover-Kohl; and Rick Hall from HPE) will travel to Alexandria to collaborate with local team members (WLP, W+A) and Aimco representatives in an intensive work session of 7 days to define the basic concept for the design and redevelopment of the Foxchase Apartments site in conformance with the recommendations of the current market study. The following Charrette description identifies the various events which could occur during the 7-day planning process: Day 1: Site Analysis. At the beginning of the Charrette, the entire Dover-Kohl team will perform additional analysis of the site and surrounding areas. The analysis will be performed with both the feasibility of optimized development and the livability needs of the community in mind. In addition to touring the site and its immediate surroundings, the team may also tour local precedent development examples that Aimco deems relevant to future development of the Foxchase Apartments site. Day 1 – 7: Design Studio. Working on-site in or near Alexandria, VA in a temporary design studio arranged by the client, the Dover-Kohl team will concentrate on the design and master plan for the site while gathering input from Aimco and identified stakeholders. During the week the Dover-Kohl team
will create a draft master plan that illustrates new street connections, open spaces, the proposed mix of uses and building types, and color renderings depicting important design elements. As master plan concepts are explored, members of our multidisciplinary team will study alternatives from each area of expertise, including street/ transportation design details and civil engineering (including stormwater, utilities, tree canopy, grading). Technical meetings will be scheduled for client, design team, and other participants (as invited by Aimco) to discuss specific topics, which may include architectural design, transportation/ infrastructure planning, and the anticipated entitlement process. Additionally, meetings with key stakeholders, potential investors, or City staff may (optionally) be arranged to discuss draft concepts and gather feedback. Day 5: Community Open House (optional). At Aimco’s discretion, key individuals, community stakeholders, and public entities may be invited to participate in the design and review of the plan. A community “Open House” may be held, where members of the community will be invited to stop by the studio and review the work-in-progress, and give their input to the design. Day 7: Work-in-Progress Presentation. At the end of the Charrette week the team and Aimco will meet to review the work generated to date. Plans will be presented illustrating the hypothetical redevelopment of the property. Accompanying renderings and other visuals will illustrate the character of the proposed new development and outline subjects remaining for future discussion.
5. Master Plan Work Products
After the Design Charrette, the Dover-Kohl team refine the following Master Plan work products: a. Illustrative Master Plan (1), the draft concepts begun during the Charrette will be refined to best illustrate both short and long term redevelopment prospects. The Illustrative Master Plan will serve as a tool to illustrate the future redevelopment of the site. The plan will designate development intensity and the appropriate mix of uses, building types, and open spaces based an interconnected network of streets and blocks. The plan will be coordinated with civil concerns, including grading, drainage, utility and stormwater management concepts. It will also reflect inputs from the transportation study. The final product will be an illustrated physical master plan that can guide the development of the property. b. Technical Plan (1), Dover-Kohl will produce a Technical Plan for the Site. The Technical Plan will show property lines, existing and proposed streets, geographic features, and future parcelization; to the extent possible, the drawing will show basic above-ground infrastructure. The Technical Plan will be drawn in AutoCAD suitable for preliminary engineering.
d. Perspective Drawings (5), Dover-Kohl will produce five (5) color visualizations depicting typical streets, squares, parks, specific locations of importance, or other significant design concepts. These illustrations will be produced through a combination of hand-drawn and computergenerated techniques. Additional renderings or views can be produced at additional cost to Aimco, if authorized. The five renderings provided under this agreement will include at least one ground-level pedestrian view (11â€?x17â€? or smaller). e. Diagrams. Dover-Kohl will produce diagrams, as needed, illustrating important plan ideas or concepts such as pedestrian and vehicular networks, open space networks, the proposed mix of uses, and building types or street types. f. Preliminary Master Plan Booklet. Dover-Kohl will provide Aimco with a summary booklet containing the plans, illustrations, and diagrams produced during Phase 1. The booklet will be provided to Aimco in both hardcopy and electronic formats (*.PDF).
c. Master Plan Calculations, based on the refined Illustrative Master Plan, to include preliminary calculations of unit types and quantities, nonresidential square footage accommodated in the plan, and rough parking calculations. It is understood that these figures are preliminary and not considered to be a guarantee of any kind.
WORK PLAN Phase 2 – Entitlement Support & Master Plan Revisions Phase 2 will include additional refinements and modifications to the Preliminary Master Plan created during Phase 1, and participation in Alexandria’s review/approval process, which is anticipated to include a Small Area Plan. The Dover-Kohl team will work in close coordination with Aimco staff and their legal counsel (Walsh Colucci Lubeley & Walsh) to determine the sequence of meetings and necessary exhibits and work products. Our preliminary fee estimate (Section 8) includes a recommended budget to be authorized for meetings and presentations, additional plan revisions, studies and analysis, and new work products completed during Phase 2. We propose to invoice for Phase 2 services based on actual hours worked and/or tasks completed; Dover-Kohl will get signed approval from Aimco before exceeding the estimated fee. Potential tasks are anticipated to include:
1. Meetings and Presentations
This task will include participation in meetings and hearings associated with Alexandria’s review/approval process (to include presentations by Dover-Kohl representatives of the plan concepts and ideas for the Foxchase Apartments site). It is anticipated that this process will include public / community meetings as well as City staff meetings over a timeframe of at least 24 months. Our fee estimate provides for presentation preparation/ attendance at up to 15 public or City staff meetings by a Dover-Kohl Founding Principal, and presentation preparation/ attendance at up to 20 meetings (10 public meetings, and 10 staff meetings) by the DoverKohl Senior Project Director. Representatives from local team members (WLP and W+A) have also budgeted to attend up to 20 meetings (10 public meetings, and 10 staff meetings) each. Additional meetings can be accommodated on an hourly basis.
2. Revisions to Preliminary Master Plan, New Exhibits
It is anticipated that additional revisions and refinements to the Preliminary Master Plan documents, or additional work products (such as new perspective drawings or plan diagrams in support of the Small Area Plan) may be necessary for meetings and presentations during the Alexandria review/approval process. Plan revisions and new design exhibits can be produced on an hourly basis, as needed; the preliminary budget reflects an estimated not-toexceed fee based on past similar projects.
3. New Studies or Analysis
Additional studies may be needed to support the master plan and submittal materials, which may include site drainage exhibits, grading and accessibility, existing tree canopy, environmental constraints (floodplain, RPA, etc), transit network diagrams, open space and recreation facilities, potential transportation improvements, adjacent property impacts, and utilities/ infrastructure analysis. New studies and technical analysis shall be produced on an hourly basis, as needed; the preliminary budget reflects an estimated not-to-exceed fee based on past similar projects.
4. CDD Concept Plan
As the Small Area Plan moves close to approval, our team can prepare a Coordinated Development District (CDD) Concept Plan and process the plan through public hearing approval concurrently with Small Area Plan approval. The CDD plan will show the layout, mix of uses, and intensities recommended with the Small Area Plan, and create the zoning district necessary to implement the Small Area Plan.
Phase 3 – Additional Services (optional) Phase 3 entails additional, on-going services to assist with project implementation to achieve the established vision for the site.
1. Development Standards
Dover-Kohl can optionally produce Development Standards to guide the work of future builders and design consultants in implementation of master plan ideas, which will include a regulating plan, basic building requirements, street standards, and architectural standards. Portions of the standards could be utilized as Design Guidelines in the regulatory approvals process. The description of the provided items is below: a. A Regulating Plan will prescribe the distribution of building types, street types, and public space in accordance with the Master Plan. This drawing will reference design criteria specified elsewhere in the Development Standards.
a. Attend additional meetings to seek regulatory approval of the Project. b Assist Aimco, and its professional advisors as appropriate, with preparing required development documents. c. Provide additional surveying and engineering services that may be required or requested, including a boundary and topographic survey of all or a portion of the property, ALTA survey of the property, existing vegetation survey, detailed utility design, detailed stormwater management design, preparation of plans for submission to City of Alexandria beyond a Small Area Plan and CDD Concept Plan, detailed road and infrastructure design, and related services. d. Assist with design implementation by: • Reviewing construction drawings for conformance with Master Plan concepts.
b. Basic Standards will illustrate and describe the required relationships between buildings and public spaces, incorporating such characteristics as buildto lines, setbacks, building heights, building massing, ancillary elements, and location of parking.
• Advising Aimco on the hiring of architects, designers, and other necessary consultants. Review for consistency with the Plan any design proposals submitted by architects, landscape architects, engineers, and designers.
c. Street Sections will illustrate by street type the physical conditions for each street shown in the Regulating Plan, such as right-of-way, vehicular lanes, sidewalks, street trees, bike facilities, and onstreet parking.
• Visiting the site, advising Aimco on the implementation of Regulating Plan details, and whether the quality of work is proceeding in accordance with the Development Standards.
d. Architectural Standards will specify by categories the architectural elements, configurations, and materials for use in the construction of buildings. This work will be based upon study of architectural precedents and traditions in the region.
2. On-going Assistance
Dover-Kohl will assist Aimco with implementing the project. Dover-Kohl shall provide these services on an as-needed, hourly basis, when requested. If requested, example activities can include having Dover-Kohl:
e. Periodically review and refine the Development Standards to reflect changing site and market conditions, as well as changes required by government regulation. f. Be available to assist Aimco’s legal counsel with preparing owners’ association documents that may be required. g. Assist Aimco with designing a promotional brochure or website; be available to assist with marketing by periodically participating in lectures, interviews, publications and the like.
SCHEDULE Phase 1 – Schematic Design
At the beginning of the planning process Dover-Kohl will establish a schedule in close consultation with Aimco. Base information should be provided to DoverKohl 2 - 4 weeks prior to the Design Charrette, to allow adequate time for review and analysis. Dover-Kohl will work with Aimco to find a suitable date for the 7-day Design Charrette based on Dover-Kohl and Aimco schedules. Phase 1 work products completed after the Charrette typically require 4 to 6 weeks for completion.
Phase 2 - Entitlement Support & Master Plan Revisions
It is anticipated that the Small Area Plan review/ approval process will require at least 24 months for completion. The Dover-Kohl team will assist in meetings, presentations, and work product revision throughout this process.
INITIAL CONCEPTS Site Analysis: Scale Comparisons
The Foxchase Apartments site with aerial photographs of historic cities and well-known regional locations, at the same scale. Scale comparisons are a revealing way to understand site potential and what will "fit". We often do this type of analysis as part of the first phase of a master plan. Seeing the size of a Savannah square, or the extent of a mixed-use destination compared to the scale of the overall property demonstrates the siteâ€™s potential. These images are helpful and informative to us as designers; they are also revealing to stakeholders and community members who may have preconceived ideas about what they would like to see on the site â€“ who then realize the possibilities are greater!

Above: View from above Duke Street, exploring the potential for a new linear green space that fronts new restaurants and residences on the Foxchase Site.
Site Analysis: Preliminary Sketches As part of our planning process, we typically illustrate many options, in both plan and elevation, to be able to identify the desired scale, character, and layout that will be most successful for the proposed development and surrounding community. Using the preliminary data provided with the RFP and some initial observations about the site and surrounding conditions, we have started to explore ideas. We are certain there are elements of these initial sketches that are not correct â€“ that will need to be updated with input from Aimco and others. We have included these sketches here simply as a demonstration of initial design approaches and illustration techniques applied to the site, which we anticipate will be discarded and a fresh start taken at the onset of the planning and design process. 68

The preliminary diagrams above begin to explore opportunities for new street network and green spaces on the site. To the left, smaller blocks are created, providing additional sidewalks and frontages for new development, and distributed green spaces. To the right, larger blocks and a large central green space could provide more opportunities for tree retention and accomodating topographic change. These are just two of many potential options to investigate. 69
