It’s all about sustainability.
Concord Riverwalk has been thoughtfully sited to make a low initial impact on the environment, and to be enhanced by the natural features of the land that supports it—rather than compete with them. The neighborhood’s compact homes impact less than 40% of their 3.7 acre site, leaving significant space for the natural features of the land to thrive.
The property abuts the Assabet River, bringing the natural and seasonal recreational features of the river to within steps from home. The layout of drives, walkways, yards, gardens and homes capitalizes on the existing natural characteristics of the land, and wetlands and wildlife habitat on the site have been preserved. Two of the homes on site recycle existing historic structures, and all the homes enjoy efficiently shared resources including rainwater collection.
Walkability is both an enjoyable and practical feature of a sustainable community. Concord Riverwalk is within a one-half mile walk to the West Concord train station and the shops and services of the town center, for a reduced reliance on cars.
