2006 MASLA Merit Award for Private Landscape Design
Early in 2005, Greenspace LLC retained HKGi to help plan and develop a unique, high-amenity rural residential development encompassing more than 280 acres of land in Laketown Township, located on the north and west sides of Lake Bavaria near the city of Chaska.
The concept plan proposes three clusters of rural residential lots weaved together with an extensive common open space system, creating three small connected rural "neighborhoods" or "hamlets" within the overall site. The site contains many beautiful natural features that present opportunities to create a truly unique rural residential community for Chaska. The concept plan incorporates access and views to a wide range of natural features, including Lake Bavaria, a creek ravine, bluffs, woods, natural and man-made wetlands, meadows and pastures.
