Land Development :: Transit-Oriented Development (TOD)
The DEA landscape architecture team, along with our planners, surveyors and civil engineers, worked closely with the client to transform this former gravel quarry site into a Transit Oriented Development community of 250+ units. Our focus was to create a lush landscape with diverse outdoor activity spaces for the residents, including a swimming pool and barbeque center, clubhouse, community garden, dog parks, and a play area. Many of these features are linked along the central Community Green open space. The project team provided integrated innovative stormwater and other sustainable features—a cascading biofilter, rainfall gardens, a green roof, cisterns, an IPM plan, and pollinator pathway plantings. Issaquah Terrace was the first multi-family site in Washington to achieve a Certification from Salmon Safe for environmental stewardship.
