Radford Park is nestled into a natural hillside just outside the southwest corner of Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas.
Aldea, El Paso is a 250 Master Planned New Urbanist Community in the city’s northwest sector. It’s located near the dramatic backdrop of the Franklin Mountains and beautiful Chihuahuan Desert. Sites Southwest, working with the owners and Moule & Polyzoides Urbanists, developed a plan for the residential and commercial center in a community well attuned to the desert environment.
The purpose of this project was to develop standard details for green infrastructure and low impact development strategies that could be incorporated into the Design Process Manual for the City of Albuquerque. The 14 details range from highly urban interventions such as storm water planter boxes and curb extension retrofits to non-urban interventions such as contour swales and Zuni bowls.
