Grand Haven Land Use Study

The site was adjacent to the river harbor of Grand Haven, Michigan, and positioned within a single-family residential community. The developer sought housing with river vista views. Grand Haven authorities requested the project have a proper scale relationship to the existing single family community.

David Zeunert & Associates proposed a combination of a mid-rise structure and townhouse units. A residential-scaled relationship was achieved by designing the mid-rise unit with a combination of different heights and various setbacks. This concept avoided the standard high-rise consisting of a singular tall massive structure lacking residential human scale.

The twofold design concept of the mid-rise structure with height and setback variations and surrounding this unit with clustered townhouse achieved the transition to the residential community, as well as meet the developer's needs for a taller structure for river vistas.
