Traditional town centers evolved over hundreds of years and have become models of modern day mixed-use developments with planned integration of retail, office, residential, hotel, recreation, or other functions. It is a movement back to pedestrian-oriented development that efficiency the intensity of land use. Mixed-use has emerged as a key component of Transit Oriented Development (TOD), Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND), Livable Communities, and Smart Growth principles.
Our venture into the Mixed-Use market is an opportunity to employ our expertise in retail, office, residential, and parking structure design. Consideration for pedestrian scale and balance of structured and open space contribute to a sense of community, a place for people to enjoy a variety of activities. Our projects are examples of integration into existing urban settings and new town center development.
