The first residents have moved in and about 50 single family homes are currently under construction at Evans Farm. Located off of Lewis Center Road in Delaware County, the 1,200-acre development has drawn attention for its adherence to the principles of New Urbanism.
Tony Eyerman, co-developer of Evans Farm along with Dan Griffin, is a New Urbanism true believer. He plans his vacations around visits to places like Seaside, FL, Norton Commons, KY and Stapleton, CO, all of which distinguish themselves from the typical suburban housing development by incorporating walkable town centers and a range of building types into their design, including single family homes, row houses and apartments over ground-level retail. The architecture tends to be traditional in these developments, with single family homes that feature front porches. They’re built on smaller lots and are served by garages that face rear alleys instead of the street.
