Bluestone Commons Master Plan
Project Lead: Ben Erickson
proposed land use diagrams
planning & site design drawings
As part of a 20 acre Master Plan for a project in Duluth, Ben Erickson partnered with ESG architects to develop all of the necessary planning and site drawings for City approval. The developer had to demonstrate they would provide adequate parking for building programs and Open Space quantities correlating to the amount of area taken up by buildings.
Pedestrian connections throughout the site were requested as part of the City requirements, therefore diagrams showing pedestrian connections within and surrounding the site were created.
As individual projects were being designed, detailed landscape plans were developed. All plantings had to be hardy to the Duluth area and tolerant of heavy clay soils.
