Existing residential areas throughout the Northeast Neighborhood are pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined streets with one to three-story structures that create a comfortable neighborhood human scale. This character, typical of South Bend's neighborhoods, will be preserved and enhanced through building placement and massing in both rehabilitation and new residential development. A variety of housing styles shall be designed for the Triangle Neighborhood that will recreate the historic context of the existing surrounding neighborhoods. The design of the new homes will relate to the existing and future residential buildings as well as the future mixed-use areas proposed along Eddy Street.
Five architectural styles have been selected for the Triangle Neighborhood.
