Case Study: Justison Landing

Variety is the spice of life - and also the secret to successful multifamily housing options in America's diverse, eclectic cities. Yet recent trends, such as smaller micro-units and more efficient, open layouts, demand more daylight and views from discriminating buyers.

That was the case at Justison Landing, a mixed-use urban development designed by AJ Thackrah, RA, of the firm Burt Hill, now Stantec. Built between the grassy banks of the Christina River and the walkable city of Wilmington, Delaware, the project offered both townhomes and condominiums with views of the river or the new street life.

“We used NanaWall for the restaurant and upper-floor residences, with the intention of being able to open the spaces as much as possible with uninterrupted views,” says Thackrah, a Philadelphia native and senior associate at Stantec who has deep experience in corporate and commercial projects. “We ended up putting screens in some of the units on the river side.”

“We used NanaWall for the restaurant and upper-floor residences, with the intention of being able to open the spaces as much as possible with uninterrupted views, the NanaWall units have a distinct attraction for buyers.”

Attract Buyers With a Unique Selling Feature

Justison Landing melds a decidedly modern look with a classic take on dense, fun urbanism. Above two-story townhomes and retail storefronts are the new lofts and apartments, some of which have the upselling feature of the NanaWall SL60 Aluminum Framed Folding System with a NanaScreen.

“It was really the intent of developer to provide a varied offering of different units and even window openings,” says Thackrah. “On one of the parcels, for example, we have condominiums facing the riverside, and NanaWall would give us the amount of opening we needed.” In other units not facing the river, a mix of standard sliding doors or operable windows were used. Yet the NanaWall units have a distinct attraction for buyers.

“This was our first time using NanaWall – it’s a product that we found for the developer,” says Thackrah. “It’s a quality product that gave us what we wanted.”
