Client Challenge & TowerPinkster Solution

Residential development company, AVB Inc.’s Walden Woods development is a 24-unit enclave of duplex condominiums set amidst 80-acres of woodlands just two miles west of downtown Kalamazoo. The property features 40 acres of preserved wilderness, a walking trail, as well as a clubhouse with a fitness center and swimming pool. Given the developmentā€™s proximity to Western Michigan University and Kalamazoo College, the team desired to create a unique atmosphere to build on the life-long learning brand of its academic surroundings. Used as the sales center during the initial phase, the 5,500 square foot clubhouse boasts a multipurpose classroom and a demonstration kitchen that can be utilized by residents and guests and is available for community education programs. In addition, the facility houses an open and flexible lounge space with comfortable seating which surrounds a warm stone fireplace for community gatherings and private events. The lounge opens onto a beautiful covered outdoor patio space complete with lounge furniture and overhead ceiling fans, creating a unique outdoor living room for socializing. The private fitness center and locker rooms connect to an outdoor pool and patio in a well-landscaped garden which overlooks the wooded wilderness beyond.
