Design Achievement - Completed for RED Development, this lifestyle center benefits from high visibility from one of the city's most prominent intersections. DLR Group's design takes advantage of this visibility with outward-facing, open air storefronts fronted by an inviting, walkable pedestrian promenade including fountains and seating plazas enhanced by variety in hardscape finishes and patterns. A variety of upscale retail tenants have been attracted to the pedestrian friendly development. Two to four restaurants are also featured, occupying both ground level and 2nd floor space.
Scope Summary - Scope of work spanned 120,000 SF of space in a series of one and two-story buildings. Sustainable design included white roof to minimize heat island effect; use of regional materials, recycled-content materials, and diversion of construction waste from landfills; water conservation measures through high-efficiency irrigation systems, and use of native plantings; reduced parking rations to minimize the amount of hardscape; and work with the City to conduct improvements to an adjacent green way and park. DLR Group provided architecture and engineering services.
