New Castle Townhomes

Worthington, MN | Housing

Overview

ISG worked with the Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership to develop sustainable townhomes that provide a community atmosphere through shared space.


Opportunity

The Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership needed to design a townhome development in Worthington with affordability in mind and through a creative design process was also able to incorporate sustainable design practices to meet the Minnesota Green Communities guidelines.

Solution

ISG designed this 30-unit townhome community with efficient use of land as well as the incorporation of common areas to encourage a true neighborhood atmosphere. Native landscaping was incorporated on the site and a rain garden was designed to filter stormwater runoff before it went into the storm sewer system. Each home has spacious rooms with a patio leading out into the courtyard. Amenities include low-maintenance and durable exterior finishes such as steel roofs, a playground area with equipment and basketball hoops, and a common pavilion for gathering. This new community now offers a neighborhood atmosphere, complete with outdoor recreation areas and places for residents to greet and interact with one another and the environment.
