in teaching planners, developers and public officials some
great ways to meet the challenges we face."
Nationally recognized planner and
|"East Lake Commons
marks a milestone in the field of community design, and is
destined to become a major landmark in the progress of the
planning profession. It demonstrates how social, architectural,
spatial, and environmental values can be successfully combined
in wonderfully innovative ways that work extremely well on
multiple levels for their lucky inhabitants."

|"In my travels around
the U.S. I've met with many people involved in the design
of our environment. Just of a few groups seem to understand
the issues we're facing today at a more profound level, and
their work stands out. Village Habitat Design is definitely
one of those. "
Real Estate Developer

intown properties. He did a tremendous job working with
our Kirkwood property, delivering a design that highly complements
the character of the neighborhood and provides the immediate
area with a brand new park. "

with the neighborhood association made my job as a developer
Lake Claire Commons
|"Before moving into
Lake Claire Commons we were concerned that we would not have
enough privacy. After 4 years what we have found is that privacy
is not an issue for us. In fact, we often feel we have more
privacy that we did before."
East Lake Commons
|"Living at East Lake
Commons has completely changed my mind about what everyday
reality can be. I used to live in Dunwoody, one of Atlanta's
most desirable neighborhoods. But East Lake Commons, despite
being in a less desirable inner-city location, feels a hundred
times more like a real community than Dunwoody. It is more
attractive physically and provides my children with much better
opportunities for safe play and exploration. I wouldn't trade
it for anything!"
Building + Social Housing Foundation
"East Lake Commons successfully demonstrates how
residential development can be carried out in a socially,
ecologically, and economically sustainable manner."
