Water Works Place

New Albany, Indiana

This ten acre residential development is on the site of a former water treatment facility near the Ohio River.  The water plant had co-existed for a century with the surrounding, historic, neighborhood.

Rosenbarger’s  design for the development  incorporates new street connections, alleys, and a range of lot sizes to reflect the traditional character of the neighborhood.  The layout was based on historic, divided streets in New Albany with narrow lanes and tight corners to slow pass-through traffic.  A central ‘square’ is planted with native trees, shrubs, and flowers.

Architectural services included an extensive ‘Design Guide’ for new homes in the development.  Front porches and rear garages are required for the new homes.   Compatible Craftsman and Queen Anne house styles, in various sizes, are described.

Rosenbarger also has designed four homes in the development.
