New interactive traffic visualization!

Hello All!

We've commissioned a traffic impact analysis conducted by Gorove / Slade. The study concludes that the project will not have a detrimental impact on local traffic conditions. All intersections studied (highlighted on the map above) will continue operating at an acceptable level of service for both the morning and afternoon peak hours. Consequently, no intersections require mitigation as a result of the development.

You can learn more about the analysis of individual intersections by clicking on the highlighted markers in the interactive map above.

Interactive shadow study is up!

Hello All!

In response to community feedback, we commissioned a study of the impact The Ladybird would have on shadows cast in the neighborhood. For 9 months of the year, the building would have no solar impact on adjacent homes between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM. During the winter (shadows calculated on the shortest day of the year) the building will have minimal impact on adjacent homes between 10 AM and 3 PM.

We've added an interactive shadow study on the Info tab. CLICK HERE or on the image below then scroll down to see it.
