This project provides an exciting solution to the challenge of creating an entire area of urban infill. The result is a new departure from the typical layout of specialty retail centers. The site planning and character of this design create a strong sense of "place" similar to that of traditional town centers, providing outdoor public space and creating a focus for the civic life of the community.
