Unsprawl Case Study: Lenox Village, Nashville

The current issue of Terrain profiles Lenox Village, Nashville's first full-scale traditional neighborhood development.

"The 208-acre development patterns itself after the traditional small Tennessee town, with a village commons, a variety of housing types in a predominantly Southern vernacular (ranging from apartments and condominiums to custom homes), and a mixed-use commercial area bridging the primarily residential portion of the neighborhood with the commercial corridor along Nolensville Road.

By turning an environmental constraint—a manmade farm pond that became habitat for the endangered Nashville crayfish—into an opportunity, by subsequently restoring the pond into its natural stream and mitigating riparian habitat for the crayfish, Regent Development, Inc. created a unique nexus between the built and natural environments."
