Hello everyone. I am taking SPD this weekend and I would really appreciate your input and if you can help me with a few questions. Thank in advanced. I hope you guys have a wonderful rest of the week. +Ryan NCARB +Nick NCARB +Michelle NCARB

1.Instructions are not clear on me having to connect the plaza to the sidewalk. I just did it, cause I saw other solutions and they have it.

2. Office tower needs to be no more than 125' away of pond. Mine has small portions outside of the range. Is this acceptable?

3. Plaza is 8,009.5 sq ft. Is this acceptable. How much would not be acceptable?

4. There needs to be a view from restaurant to pond. How much of a view? From a specific side or entry? Instructions are unclear.

Good morning all,
I have a few question regarding the site design.

1. To meet the requirement on the ncarb example program "The Office Tower and the Pond shall be no more than 125 ft apart. "
Does the entire OT or part of the OT have to be within 125 ft of the Pond?
2. Does it acceptable to have plaza overlay with the entrance ( photo 1)?
3. How far should the driveway be away from easement, a few inches off the easement ( photo 2)?
4. If the new (designed) pedestrian plaza is protected by the existing deciduous trees, is it necessary to place new coniferous tree near the existing deciduous trees (considering deciduous trees will be leavesless during winter) because the prevailing winter wind?

Very appreciate your help. : )

Hello -- After gaining inspiration from you all here I took my first attempt at the site grading, below. I would love any thoughts or feedback!

I would appreciate thoughts on:
1. Whether this looks generally in the ballpark, or full of critical errors
2. How to transition above the "claws" between 108 and 109
3. Whether I used too many control points and over graded.

Thank you so much in advance, Caitlin
