Perspective from Sue Weems, Property Owner
My late husband entrusted me to create something new with his beloved land. To that end, I envision a paradigm shift in the way developments are planned and built. In addition, we are all dedicated to a social initiative to create a vibrant, traditional neighborhood for all ages that embodies the values of a small village, coupled with environmental sustainability, and the opportunity to to remain within the rich social fabric of one’s neighborhood as you age. This is my home and I plan on spending the rest of my days here. I hope you share my excitement as we move forward with this progressive vision.
Perspective from Sun Studio, Horizontal Design and Planning
At Sun Studio we specialize in sustainable urban neighborhood design. So when Sue Weems asked us to help her envision a net-zero energy neighborhood with a CSA Farm at the heart, with intertwined natural systems, and design focused on aging in community, we were absolutely thrilled. Our approach puts a premium on marrying ecologically based and climate smart site planning, high performance architecture and landscapes, and environments that foster healthy community and sustainable living. We are honored to work on this neighborhood with the Weems family and Cornerstone Homes, and will strive to design what we hope will be a new benchmark in environmental and social sustainability.
