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.
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.
