Perez designed this 152 unit, $35 million, a multi-family residential project as a New Urbanist community, reinstating the traditional street grid, designing smaller-scale traditionally styled duplexes and four-plexes to replace the former superblock HUD development. Sidewalks, front porches, rear yards, community parks, and recreation areas recreated the original urban fabric that existed prior to the construction of the HUD superblock.
