KS Associates provided site design services for a 60-acre upscale adult rental community in the City of Lorain. The Village at Lighthouse Point, located on Jaeger Road west of the Lighthouse Village shopping center, offers a much-needed rental alternative to those seeking residence in the City of Lorain. The project broke ground in the winter of 2015.
KS Associates provided site design services for the project, helping the developer through the many phases of the design process. KS Associates also represented the developer at Lorain Planning Commission meetings to understand the needs of the community and deliver design solutions that satisfied stakeholder concerns. The project was approved at the August 6, 2014, Lorain Planning Commission meeting.
The site was designed to support 52 one-story buildings that will house 298 suites ranging from 1,200 to 1,900 square feet. Located off of the expanded and rehabilitated Jaeger Road, it provides direct access to the Lighthouse Village shopping area, and to the community’s club house and five building clusters: Lake Erie Cove, Marblehead Cove, South Bass Cove, West Sister Cove, and Fair Port Cove. KS Associates’ site plan also calls for park-like landscaping with walking trails and several acres of ponds. The site was designed with future development in mind; 30 acres of the site are earmarked for commercial use.
The Village at Lighthouse Point fills a market gap for housing in Lorain. The community offers a maintenance-free rental lifestyle while providing the privacy and comfort of a condominium or housing development.
