Northgate Crossing Subdivision

To accommodate a significant but rare flooding issue, the planners of Northgate Crossing created the first subdivision in Harris County utilitzing a levee along a major waterway – the south bank of Spring Creek.  Knudson’s team was able to satisfy mitigation requirements using creative techniques and in-depth knowledge.

To satisfy the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ requirements, a mosaic of islands was developed from peninsulas within an on-site detention lake, thereby enhancing wetland values by maximizing the edge effect for aquatic life and provideing the area with a unique, distinctive amenity.
