HUNTFIELD MASTER PLAN
Cunningham | Quill led a new master planning team effort for the design of this 996-acre, proposed residential, mixed-use plan located in Charles Town, WV. Within the county’s urban growth boundary and adjacent to several important Washington family homes, the Huntfield plan draws heavily from local character and history for the design of the plan. The plan reflects principles of smart growth: compact design, directing development toward existing communities, a mix of land uses, pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods with parks, civic buildings, and incorporated retail. A proposed open space system connects to downtown Charles Town and its future trail system. Following months of interactive public meetings, Jefferson County voted to support the new plan and eight months later, Huntfield was annexed into the City of Charles Town. The project is a transit-oriented development (TOD) plan that connects the site with downtown Washington via an existing regional commuter rail, which bisects the site.
