“We’ve been working on designing multifamily housing developments in Lafayette Park for nearly 15 years,” explained Michael Poris, AIA, principal of McIntosh Poris Associates, in a release. “DuCharme Place builds upon the vision of the park’s original development team by creating a community integrated with nature to support the existing historic district. To respect the site, we wanted the relationship with nature to be a driving factor behind the design. We organized the buildings around landscaped courtyards while also creating street walls on Lafayette Street, Orleans Street, and DuCharme. Every unit has great views and abundant natural light.”
