The Crossings is a 20-acre residential senior living complex that addresses the many different needs of aging residents. It sits on a complex site in which the design benefited from a multitude of Westwood’s professional services.

Overcoming Obstacles

The Crossings’ is partially situated in a floodplain and sparse wetland areas. In order for the site to be viable, Westwood’s engineers needed to bring portions of the site out of the floodplain, while working within the city requirements and constraints. This effort required creative design solutions to minimize dirt movement, retaining wall heights and encroachment into wetland areas.  Using Westwood’s full range of services, the team worked through these design challenges while working closely with the city, client and contractor.  Westwood also worked with TxDOT to obtain driveway access for the main entrance to The Crossings.
