Project Description:

Bradburn Village is a mixed-use, mixed-density neighborhood to be built on a 112-acre site in Westminster, Colorado.

Continuum Partners selected Wolff Lyon as part of a design team that included Duany Plater-Zyberk (DPZ) Town Planners of Florida and Civitas of Denver. Wolff Lyon investigated over 20 different building types in terms of their relationship to each other and the street, required parking, and building size and disposition. These prototypes were the basis for DPZ’s master plan for Bradburn Village, which was created during a charrette in Denver in the Fall of 1999.

The Lot and Block studies explored how different building types utilizing common lot depths could be combined to create an efficient and memorable urban design. These studies ensured that appropriate densities, convenient parking, ample green areas, and well-defined public spaces would be provided.

The Building Prototype studies provided the developer with valuable information about comparative densities, development flexibility, parking impacts, and urban design character. The prototypes served as a basis for the development of more detailed architectural solutions as well as articulating Continuum’s vision throughout the development review process.
