The most unusual housing cluster in the Southwest redevelopment area is River Park, a cooperative completed in 1962 south of Carrollsburg Square. The project's developer, Reynolds Aluminum Service
The apartment towers form a wall-like configuration along Delaware Avenue, as if to block their residents' view of public housing across that thoroughfare. The town houses are distinctive for their barrel-vaulted roofs, a feature intended to contribute visual excitement to the project. Aluminum is used throughout the high rises and the town houses in window frames, doors, sunscreens, garden fences, outdoor sculpture, and staircases. Of particular note is the grillwork, punched from aluminum sheets.
The town houses are arranged around smaller courtyard spaces and parking is removed to the periphery of the site. While the landscaping is admirable for its uncluttered directness, it appears bleak when compared to the verdure of Capitol Park and the variety at Tiber Island and Carrollsburg Square.
