Please oh please look at this site design vig UPDATE

Postby jdunks » Tue May 15, 2018 4:38 pm

Think I got this but pleeeez tell me if you see something. Is the service drive connected the right way to the restaurant? And the walkways to the plaza? Conifers good for wind? And what is the 'noonday summer sun on the plaza' requirement? Am I ok for that? Finally, is it ok for the plaza to touch the office tower, since that's not overlapping?

Thanks!!! Thanks so much!!!

Hmm, that's weird, I can see it on my screen. But I'll post it again. Thanks.

There is a gap in the winter wind protection for the PP....see the service drive.
New coniferous trees downwind of the restaurant serve no purpose....same for the new ones west of the main drive....they are not upwind of the PP.
Forcing service vehicles through the parking area is poor design logic.

Thanks so much for the feedback. I have some questions - not being argumentative, I'm sure you're right, but I'm just trying to clarify my confusion.

New coniferous trees downwind of the restaurant serve no purpose....same for the new ones west of the main drive....they are not upwind of the PP. I see that the ones by the lake are not needed, but the others do seem like they're upwind of the PP to me - wouldn't I have another gap in wind protection without those? Or is the restaurant providing the wind break?
Forcing service vehicles through the parking area is poor design logic. So if the service road brings in dedicated paving of its own, that's preferable, even though there's additional paving? I though minimal paving would trump over the poor design factor.

Could you also help me understand the no shade on the PP rule? Am I ok as long as I don't put conifers to the south of the PP?

Again, thanks for your help.

I though minimal paving would trump over the poor design factor. Reconfiguring could eliminate excess paving AND keep service vehicles out of the parking area.

Keep shade on the PP to a minimum.


Again, thanks for your help.
