Cooper Lane Precedent

This is another precedent I looked at for the project. This site is located just down the street from the site.
Cooper Lane is a development located on Whitfield Street in Starkville, MS. The design was lead by an architect and features large expanses of green space, with little private space. The development won awards for its effors to protect trees throught the development process, however the root zones were not protected and tree are showing signs of decline. The stark white buildings with few windows does not provide a welcoming environment and makes the site feel cold and closed off to visitors
