“Creating the tools to build affordable and well-designed homes”
The Olde Huntersville neighborhood, together with the City and led by WPA Work Program Architects, has created a plan book for Olde Huntersville that captures and complements the architectural style of the neighborhood. The Plan Book is intended to make it easy for potential homeowners to build their dream home in the beautiful, historic Olde Huntersville neighborhood. It follows the hard work that the residents have done to write and begin to implement the Olde Huntersville Neighborhood Strategic Plan. It is the first City of Norfolk initiative to give residents tools to make building affordable and well-designed houses on narrow lots possible without going through the rigorous and time-consuming Non-Standard Lot Review process or the Conditional Use Permit process. The Plan Book also provides opportunities for renters to become owners in the neighborhood, and makes a way for the neighborhood to grow from within. The houses shown on these pages are beautiful, customizable, market-rate homes that fit into the architectural character of the neighborhood. There are three, four, and five-bedroom plans with options for accessible bedrooms, perfect for aging-in-place.
