Our unusual spring has become a beautiful summer so far. Each day brings new developments to Rivers Pointe Estates, where we will soon build new construction homes. Now, as we get ready for roads to go in, we’re following our master plan for this unique community. Here are just some of the things that will make Rivers Pointe special:
Neighborhood streets at Rivers Pointe Estates are carefully designed to be attractive, safe and easy to use for bikes and pedestrians. Our master plan calls for “calming” traffic patterns and roads with decreased impervious surfaces.
Beyond being safe and peaceful, the roads through Rivers Pointe will look nice, too. We’re adding pavers, stone walls, fencing, bollards and custom guardrails. Street signs will all be custom and our special “dark sky” street lights are planned to minimize light pollution. Along the roads in certain sections of the community will be sidewalks finished with pavers or stamped or stained concrete.
River Overlook Trail
We know just how special this land overlooking the Ohio River is. Rivers Pointe residents will be able to enjoy the setting and the view every day. A continuous 8-foot-wide biking/walking path will be provided along one side of the main drive beginning at the Village Center. From there, the path will lead to a neighborhood park overlooking the Ohio River.
This path, along with a network of other trails, will allow community residents to get outside their new construction homes to explore nature and lead an active lifestyle.
Green Spaces Around New Construction Homes
Finally, as the roads are built in Rivers Pointe, you can rest assured that they are designed to minimize grading, clearing and impact on the land, to preserve trees and to provide unique neighborhoods within the community. In fact, when you drive the main road in Rivers Pointe, you’ll feel like you’ve entered a state park.
We’ve set aside 20 percent of our acreage as green space. So Rivers Pointe homeowners will be able to walk out their back door right into natural surroundings. With pocket parks, plenty of trees, horse stables near by and even a creekside campsite as part of our community, the beauty of nature is right at home at Rivers Pointe.
More to Come
We’re so excited to see roads coming into Rivers Pointe. Watch this space for more information about community amenities, new construction homes and more to come.
