Overton Walk is a Small Planned Unit Development (SPUD) conceived out of a traditional residential design layout, open space connectivity, pedestrian friendly streets, and smart growth practice.
This proposed 17-unit development provides single-family detached housing on residential lots of 4,500 to 7,200 square feet in size with 45’-110’ street and/or open space frontage(s). The site density is 5.36 units per acre on 3.17 acres total and is in accordance with East Baton Rouge Parish’s FuturEBR Plan. Typical home size is estimated to be 1,500 to 3,500 square feet at an average of 2,500. Development and lot open spaces will yield an average of 20%.
This project is designed to promote views in and out of the site, pedestrian walkability, safe streets (traffic calming), community connectivity, foliage preservation, sensitivity to existing single-family edge conditions, and high quality residential housing. This project is 100% pre-sold to similar market types and buyers of sister development — e'tage Gardens on Government Street. Through restrictive guidelines, an architectural/landscape/planning review board, and the Homeowners Association — Overton Walk will be one of the premier residential developments along Old Hammond Highway and in Baton Rouge.
Land uses will be limited to Single Family Detached Housing, Landscape Amenities and Open Space for the gathering of residents and guests. There are a proposed 17 on-street parking stalls at one per home. The 3.17 acres currently contains 2 detached single family homes both in blight and disrepair along with 3 curb cuts off Old Hammond. There are approximately 30 existing trees that will be assessed by an licensed arborist, protected to their fullest extent and incorporated into the landscape and housing designs.
Onsite Design + Development will be the sole residential designer on all 17 homes to ensure the streetscape represents a consistent high-value product.
