Way Finders selected Kuhn-Riddle Architects for this award-winning project, combining access to nature with the walkability of a more urban setting. Spread across 13-acres with beautifully landscaped grounds, the development is arranged around a common green, with garden space, a playground and a shared community building. Tenants have access to the conservation land that abuts Olympia Oaks and a network of nature trails. Designed with the needs of families in mind, it’s close to Wildwood Elementary school and the shops and services of downtown Amherst. It’s also adjacent to the University of Massachusetts campus and well connected to the surrounding region by PVTA bus service.
Olympia Oaks is a Way Finders’ development offering 42 energy-efficient, one- to three-bedroom townhouses and garden style units. The development also offers three units equipped for hearing-impaired tenants and three wheelchair accessible units. There is on-site laundry, parking, and 24-hour maintenance. This development is an entirely Smoke-Free community.
