The Summit at Bethel Bethel, CT
The Summit at Bethel is a luxury townhome community that sits high on a rocky hillside, affording many units with commanding views in to the surrounding country side. LRC assisted Toll Brothers, Inc. with a series of landscape improvement projects, beginning with the entry to the development – an arrival through a dramatic rock cut several hundred feet below the residential area. In addition to design of landscape plans for planting of the entrance area, we developed plans and details for fencing, stone walls and piers, specialty pavement patterns and signage. Most significantly, the main project identification sign is a stenciled steel panel that is mounted on an outcropping above the entrance area, complimented by uplighting and a subtle water fall feature behind the sign. This sign required a variance due to its unique scale and placement and LRC prepared perspective illustrations to support the successful application. LRC also prepared planting plans for streetscapes and common area, round-about island focal points, typical unit cluster developments, and the community amenities area.
