Redwood USA presents plans adjacent to landfill

Conceptual plans for a 147-unit residential, rental development on 30 acres of land adjacent to a former landfill property at Avon and Dequindre Roads in Rochester Hills were warmly received by the Rochester Hills Planning Commission on Tuesday, October 16.

Redwood USA presented plans for a "neighborhood" development in the area that would consist of attached, single-family units targeted at empty nesters. The neighborhoods are designed to fill a need for affordable, aging-in-place housing for empty nesters in their mid-50s. Redwood has similar developments in other Michigan communities, including Washington Township, Shelby Township, White Lake Township, Orion Township, Commerce Township and Wolverine Lake.

No formal plans have been submitted to the city, and the conceptual plans were presented to gauge reception by the planning commission, as Redwood would seek for a change in the current zoning in the area and explore the possibility of creating a Planned Unit Development (PUD).

Plans presented include single-story homes with two attached units in each building. Each home would include a private two-car garage, open floor plans, second full bathrooms, eat-in kitchens and smart designs to appeal to empty nesters, according to designers Bergmann Architects, Engineers and Planners.

While targeting empty nesters, Redwood Neighborhoods aren't age restricted. The neighborhoods also are designed to appeal to career folk looking for quiet communities, such as those working in public safety, nursing or other fields, Redwood said in their presentation.

Most Redwood rents range from $1,200 to $2,200 per month.
