The center creates a recognizable urban environment, with a level of detail and complexity that provides a pedestrian scale for the area. It is the beginning of a new neighborhood.
The modern dynamic forms of the buildings reflect their role as an urban transit hub and also something of their ancestry in the industrial area. The designs are intended to be dynamic and eye-catching, to create a recognizable landmark quality that will anchor the new area. They are intended to have an “edgy” urban quality that reflects some of the character of the industrial warehouse conversion that is going on in other cities, such as Portland and New York. The tall pylon sign/sculpture is an important tool that identifies the project from nearby highways.
