CityPlace at Springwoods Village

CityPlace at Springwoods Village is a 60-acre pedestrian-friendly urban district featuring office, retail, residential, and open spaces. The community is designed to balance nature, urbanism and diversity, transforming how people live, work, and play. The town center is designed around a plaza, designed by OJB, which includes a water feature, restaurants and a flexible green space.

Located adjacent to the town center and vibrant plaza is CityPlace Park. The park integrates with the area’s natural ecosystem; it is built around a preserved forest habitat and new drainage corridor which assists with the site’s stormwater collection. Water management was the largest challenge on site. 8 interconnected ponds allow for an 8’ water fluctuation on site, which accommodate a 100 year flood event. Working directly with the Army Corps of Engineers, excess water runs underground to Spring Creek. CityPlace Lake is the first drainage corridor/park system from Interstate 45, and acts as one of three of the community’s drainage corridor systems.

OJB designed a public amenity out of the detention system. The thoughtfully planned landscape design consists of a series of beautiful lakes, waterfalls and open activity areas that provide many opportunities for visitors and residents alike. The multi-use trails connect to adjacent properties, nearby business and recreation venues, as well as boardwalks and jetties for people to integrate with nature.

The design includes 100% native and adaptive Gulf Coast plants, along with aquatic planting to filter stormwater runoff into the lakes. The lake’s water is recirculated for various pond features and water is drawn from the ponds to be used for on-site irrigation. A series of sustainable practices are incorporated into the site’s design, which not only meet the community’s guidelines, but also serves the community in an environmentally conscious manner and creates a resilient space and social commodity.

OJB designed the Community Master Plan, as well as the landscape for the Town Center, Plaza and CityPlace Park.
