Hendrix to move some dirt

Posted By on Fri, May 5, 2006 at 2:31 PM

Hendrix College Trustees today approved the beginning of a 100-acre residential and commercial development across the street from the campus, to be known as The Village at Hendrix. It's ambitious stuff and the idea is to create something that looks like neighborhoods looked long ago -- the so-called New Urbanism.

Said President Tim Cloyd:  “The Village at Hendrix will bring to life memories of a lifestyle when the grocery store was truly around the corner and neighbors could chat with each other from their front porches – a vibrant, close-knit, environmentally-friendly community that promotes intellectual stimulation.”

Traditional Neighborhood Development Partners of Durham, N.C., will develop the project. Hendrix said it had chosen Andres Duany, "widely regarded as America's greatest town planner since Daniel Burnham in the late 19th or John Nolen in the early 20th century, to design the village.”

The work will be done in five phases. The first, to begin in 2007, includes 68 single-family houses, 23 townhouses and "live/work" homes; 75 apartments and nearly 70,000 square feet of retail and office space.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
