Tour J: Urban Reserve–a modern neighborhood Architecture at Urban Reserve, Dallas’ first low-impact development, is modern, arising from the talents of a select group of regionally and nationally recognized architects. The homes of Urban Reserve are of their time and of their place– North Texas in the early 21st century. Each home is sustainably designed, incorporating sensible siting and massing, non-toxic, high-quality materials, efficient systems, and low-impact construction techniques. Its landscaping was named one of Eco Structure Magazine’s “Innovative Green Projects 2009.” Participants will visit Vanguard Way, the main street through the reserve, as well as a few homes in the neighborhood.
