Pinehurst NewCore Area Visioning
Pinehurst, North Carolina (2005)
Pinehurst was established in the Sandhills country of North Carolina during the late-nineteenth century was designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. Now known for its quaint village center, surrounding cottages, and world-class golf courses, the Village was challenged by a 19-acre area adjacent to the historic village center. Referred to as the "NewCore" area, it had long been underdeveloped and the existing land uses were utilitarian, such as the Village's public works yard. Desiring to determine the most appropriate future uses, densities and character for the area, The Walker Collaborative (TWC) was hired as part of a consultant team to plan the NewCore area. TWC led the extensive public input process, including the creation and administration of a Vision Survey, the analysis of the survey results, conducted numerous public meetings, and led a charrette to create the Master Plan.
