Project Name:
Varni Property

The Varni property, located on seventeen acres, was planned in clusters for one hundred and thirty-six single-family units. A density of eight units per acre with a mix of 25 percent two bedroom, 50 percent three bedroom, and 25 percent four bedrooms. Union City required an acoustical study of the area and a single-family “feeling”. Bedrooms were relocated as a result and an acoustical barrier was constructed. Amenities included a recreation center, swimming pool and play areas.
