Barclay Square came into existence after its developer won a competition using a conceptual design by G.J. Olson. The accompanying pictures only hint at the site's challenges; the prime one being its topography and split-level interiors, whose complexity was compounded by the relocation of the streets bordering the parcel. A further complicating factor was the site's shape; it underwent numerous changes during negotiations held between the State and the Municipality.
As you can see from the photographs, the program was aimed for a high-end corporate rental market (sizes of the units range from 1,200 square feet to 3,000 square feet) requiring access to a garage. Designing the large manor houses in the shape of a double T footprint resulted in the creation of motor courts at the ends of the buildings. While the Club House is a multi-level design which takes up grade and is a main feature as you enter the community.
