A New New Town, 16 Years In The Making

Duany and Plater-Zyberk have designed Haymount, a "neo-traditional" town set to double the population of its county.

The "environmentally conscious 'neo-traditional town' of 4,000 homes, offices and retail space on the Rappahannock River, just outside Fredericksburg [Virginia]…to be built in three phases with 500,000 square feet of commercial office space and 250,000 square feet of retail space, is now expected to be complete by 2013." While some are applauding the development's design, others decry its "greenfield" location, calling for more infill development first.
