Terrain Work to Design New Eco(tonal) Community in Illinois

Terrain Work has begun the urban design and planning for a new 33 acre Eco(tonal) Community on the site of a former tree production nursery in Central Illinois.  The community will be organized around the ecotones of several landscape types: Deciduous Hardwood Forest, Shortgrass Prairie, and Littoral.  A central wildlife corridor creates a link for both species and residents to move between an adjacent hardwood forest, and a shared open space surrounding a small lake.  A water management plan for the community will capture and treat all runoff generated on the site through a network of bio-cells distributed throghout the community.  Visit us at terrainwork.com for updates on this project.
