A mixed-use land development and transportation system was designed for a nine (9) acre plot of land near downtown San Jose. The goal of this project was to design a safe, green, and attractive community for residents to live, interact with their neighbors, and enjoy the amenities within the community. The community includes an apartment complex, park, playground, picnic area, retail stores, and offices. The scope of work and analysis for this project included drainage design, earthwork calculations, street design, and traffic analysis. Low impact designs were used to reduce the amount of waste, pollution, and runoff for the project. Additionally, the final design incorporates the elements of a community, encouraging a reduction in travel and use of alternative modes of transport, so that sustainability will carry on with the residents.
