Cherry Hill Village Center

Centered upon and extending outwards from a historic crossroads hamlet, Cherry Hill Village is a new 460-acre community anchored by a schoolhouse, church, cemetery, hotel, general store, and a small factory built under Henry Ford’s “cottage industry” program.  Historic buildings knit seamlessly as focal points within the new commercial and residential fabric. LRK utilized a cooperative, interactive partnering process and unique computer-based community vision survey to create the master plan.
