Project Description:

The Rivercrest Neighborhood is located just a mile north of Hanover. At Rivercrest, affordable rental units for Dartmouth College employees and married graduate students are mixed with for-sale row homes, duplexes, and single family homes.

The master plan creates a network of pocket parks, trails, and green courts connecting different parts of the neighborhood to its surroundings. Buildings have been designed so that they can be built by a modular home manufacturer. The Rivercrest Neighborhood is a candidate for LEED-ND.

The overall density is 7.2 units per acre. However, a significant amount of land remains as open space. The average net density on developable blocks (including some pocket parks) is 10 units per acre.
