dc.description.abstract The main thrust of stopping the growth inactive area around the central business district(C.B.D.) by developing a reside community in this a new housing would be increasing white collar workforce of the C.B.D. and stop the deterioration of the existing residential around the inactive zone. This new housing would be higher in density than the more traditional reside communities that make up a city. The research contains information on what is important to create a new residential community and how these elements work in an urban environment. To test the validity of the research a site has been chosen in Lousiville, Kentucky to develop along these guide lines. Two basic approaches were taken in the design process. The first was to study the history and transitions that had already occurred on the site. This study was done in order to develop a better understanding of why things were done and their relevance to the present and future. Second, the basic elements of the urban fabric were studied independent from a total context to develop a vocabulary in deal design problem. The final design resulted in the production of a master plan for the site which designates basic building forms and use to the entire site. One block was also developed with considerably greater detail to demonstrate the actual possibilities of the environment.
