I'm interested in precedents for a new urbany subdivision configuration for both attached and detached single family (fairly high density, say at least 8-10 units/gross acre) with garages in back (alley loaded) and where the front entrance to each home fronts a sidewalk on a linear park (with fronting homes flanking sides of the green) but where there is no direct vehicular access to the front before the park.. just a sidewalk/pedestrian street on either side of the park and in front of the homes. I can think of one example - Liberty Village - but was wondering whether any more came to mind. Issue is that there's no room to hit the unit target with front street access without sacrificing the park, which the client doesn't want to do.
In what I've been able to come with so far, I'm proposing that the units would present a unified street wall without setback, except a porch/stoop, to the park/sidewalk. Unit parking would be accessed via the alley, and there might be guest parking at the end of each 6-8 unit "block" on the side streets. Given a 30-35' lot width, the maximum one would have to walk along one of the two park edges to get to the guest parking would be 140' or 4 unit lot-widths. If we limited each block to 6 units, that would fall to a maximum of 105' or 3 unit lot-widths. This is in a resort-type setting. Any examples would be appreciated.
