The Villages

Traverse City, MI

Here we worked with an engineer who needed help showing both the developer and the township what this finished development would look like. In this case, sharing his vision meant getting both funding and municipal approval. We were more than happy to assist with a 3D visualization of the proposed site plan of apartments, townhouses and duplexes.

This was back before drones existed, so we simulated an aerial view of the plan by creating a composite shot using a provided black and white photo with our rendered buildings and landscaping added in. The engineer didn’t need photoreal 3D models, so we kept the buildings as very simple representations. This saved time and money, and he got his plans approved!
