Urban Land Magazine is the magazine of Urban Land Institute – an organization with a mission to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide.
Each month, Urban Land profiles projects that exemplify best practices in the construction industry. In the March/April edition, Urban Land featured notable Medium-Tall Multifamily Housing projects. From Urban Land:
“Medium-tall buildings may not match high-rises in terms of density, but they offer other advantages in an urbanizing world. They block less sunlight and offer stronger visual connections between residents in their units and the streets below. They integrate more gracefully with low-rise and single-family neighborhoods. By incorporating courtyards and rooftops decks, they can increase connections to the outdoors in the civic realm.”
Equinox MC’s project, The Modules, was one of the featured developments in the article. Other featured projects included:
- 1221 Broadway in San Antonio, Texas
- 2802 Pico in Santa Monica, California
- Bermondsey Island in London, United Kingdom
- Boreal in Nantes, France
- Gray’s Landing in Portland, Oregon
- Harvest Commons Apartments in Chicago, Illinois
- Mesquite, Optima Sonoran Village in Scottsdale, Arizona
- NSO Bell Building in Detroit, Michigan
- West Campus Housing, Phase I in Seattle, Washington
Since its completion in 2010, The Modules has been featured in several publications including The New York Times, Architectural Record, and Buildings Magazine. We are especially excited that The Modules has been featured in Urban Land Magazine because of reach among our peer and customers in the industry.
