An alternative site development concept was designed for this neighborhood mixed-use district. A large chain developer had proposed the classic box store set back by rows of parking from this well-known corner. A variety store and several homes were being removed from this well-known neighborhood section.
The design scheme orientated the new store entry toward the existing intersection, across from a church and several small neighborhood restaurants. The façade was designed to stimulate what might have been several smaller facades which would have historically been a more natural development of this walk able neighborhood.
