Challenge

Accommodate the needs of specialty retail tenants while providing a pedestrian-friendly “market street.”

Solution

The town center design, comprised of a ten-block network of streets with first-floor retail and second-level office space, creates a “town green” and market square feel. Serving as the feature public amenity, the green space is surrounded by cafes and restaurants where families and friends can gather and mingle. An eclectic variety of building forms, heights, and materials create the mosaic quality which is prevalent in more evolved towns and villages.
