At its start, this picturesque 15 acre site on the south shores of Lake Minnetonka included an incredible natural environment suitable for a residential neighborhood in a sought after community. The very things that make the site unique also created development challenges and required close coordination with regulatory agencies.
The Landform team coordinated with the project developer to protect the site’s assets and fulfill regulatory requirements. The resulting neighborhood design for Hawks Pointe creates 15 lots for single family homes nestled within impressive stands of mature trees. Thoughtful, context sensitive stormwater treatment measures protect the water quality of Lake Minnetonka. Roadway work was coordinated with Alliant Engineering and MnDOT to ensure safe access to the neighborhood, via new turn lanes.
