Project: Warner Homes Redevelopment, Hope VI Community Development – Peoria, IL


The New Riverwest is a 28-acre, Hope VI community development near downtown Peoria. The mixed income community of 200 homes also includes a new 11,000 sq. ft. community center, a central park, several "Tot-Lots" and a public art program.
Sonoc Architects provided comprehensive Masterplanning, as well as Architectural Design, Construction Document and Project Administration services. The process involved extensive community outreach in addition to coordination between multiple government and private agencies. The fundamental planning and design concept focused on developing a community that would allow for individual expression of each resident. Every home differs in appearance, with each unit having its own front and back door, and individual yards.

The community was developed to be a neighborhood designed in context with its surroundings and connected by a "traditional" concept of streets and alleys to the adjoining neighborhoods. Parking is located directly adjacent to each home.
