Cherry Orchard Ranch
Cherry Orchard Ranch
Named after the community’s forbearer, Cherry Orchard Ranch was designed to offer residents a range of desirable housing options while meeting California’s affordable housing requirements. Appealing to a larger range of senior home owners, this project represents the ability of MH communities to expand their demographic base. 
Restricted by an encroaching flood plain and a preexisting drainage channel, the site had many design challenges to overcome to ensure the project’s viability. Led by Donald C. Westphal Associates, a team of professionals were able to provide the client with a community poised to prevail in the current Gilroy, CA housing market.
Mills of Miami
Mills of Miami
Described as New Urbanism Lite, Mills of Miami demonstrates Donald C. Westphal Associates’ ability to design Traditional Neighborhood Developments in a conventional context. Miami Township, just outside of Cincinnati, OH enthusiastically welcomed the design which incorporated single family housing and higher density town homes.  
As is the case with most Traditional Neighborhood Development designs, the project revolves around a central plaza/open space with a community center and pool feature. It is a design concept that will create a vibrant community reminiscent of historical neighborhoods. Phase one of this project has been completed and is filling.
Walnut Hill
Walnut Hill
Catering to an adult demographic, Walnut Hill was designed to provide cost effective retirement opportunities while simultaneously meeting modern expectations.  
Incorporating sites capable of accommodating double wide homes was only the first step. A modest recreation center was also included to serve a variety of resident needs and to provide a marketing advantage for the community. It was located and sized to maximize access and visibility. 
Similarly, woodland preserves were included to provide recreational opportunities and to best utilize challenging topographic conditions.
