LandDesign created a “Texas Resort”-style town center that reflects Viridian’s commitment to sustainability. The design process focused on the divided lakes on-site as key elements in integrating nature throughout the development. Emphasizing placement of the lakes was critical in giving the space a sense of unity with nature. Viridian’s five lakes and miles of trails stand true to the central purpose of the community, which is to give people the chance to live and interact with the spaces they live in without spending an exorbitant amount of time traveling to them.
Parks are dispersed throughout Viridian, and throughout the planning process LandDesign made sure that a green space or park was within 700 feet of any front door to emphasize accessibility. Having nature within arm’s reach is essential to the Viridian experience. Bringing natural elements into the everyday experience of residents was the team’s overarching goal, which is demonstrated by Viridian’s continued success.
