Cunningham | Quill Architects led a master planning team effort for the design of this 996-acre proposed residential, mixed-use plan in Charles Town, West Virginia. Within Jefferson County’s urban growth boundary area, the Huntfield plan draws heavily from local character and history, including several important Washington family homes.
The plan reflects principles of smart growth, compact design, directing development toward existing communities, a mix of land uses, pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods with parks, civic buildings, and retail. A proposed open space system in the plan connects to downtown Charles Town and its future trail system. Following months of interactive public meetings, Jefferson County voted to support the new plan and eight months later, Huntfield was annexed into Charles Town.
Currently under ongoing construction, the project seeks to become a transit-oriented development plan that would connect the site with downtown Washington via an existing regional commuter rail that bisects the site.
