The Lakes Precedent

This precedent is located just west of the site and considered when designing the whitfield and scales site.
The Lakes development is located on Whitfield Street in Starkville, MS. The landscape architect led design features single family detached housing and one duplex around a central lake. The overly wide streets loose the sense of scale and the completely surrounded lake allows very limted access to those not living directly on the lake. The neighborhood was designed for the car as the garage sits at the front of the house and many times hides the front door. The greenspace at he front of the site does not accompany many uses does not get utilized.
