The New Town Square
East West Partners
Meadowmont brings back the convenience of a “Main Street” neighborhood, with opportunities to shop and play within a stone’s throw of home. For more than 10 years, planners, engineers, and architects brainstormed this 435-acre extension of Chapel Hill. McAdams was a part of the team that made the vision a reality and led the numerous regulatory and permitting hurdles. McAdams developed detailed final plans and negotiated approvals from numerous regulatory agencies including Town of Chapel Hill, Orange County for erosion control, Orange Water and Sewer Authority (OWASA) for utilities, and North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) for major improvements along NC Highway 54. The improvements for NC Highway 54 included a bicycle/pedestrian trail on either side as well as a pedestrian tunnel underneath the highway. The McAdams stormwater team overcame the Master Stormwater Plan challenge by designing a few large stormwater facilities that optimize treatment for the entire site. This innovative plan has proven to be extremely useful to the developer.
