New mixed-use development in a historic neighborhood

CR is designing a mixed-use development located on a prominent street corner and intersection in the small community of Northside. Situated in a historic district, the design team has faced the challenge of how to incorporate a new residential and retail development into the surrounding neighborhood. CR hosted a community charrette and a series of community meetings to gather input and address concerns of the surrounding residents of the neighborhood. The information gathered in these meetings was incorporated into the design. The design team was also faced with the challenge of topography and grade of the existing land, providing restaurant & retail space that fits the culture of the neighborhood and providing adequate safety and security for the project. The development is slated for completion in 2015.
