The core should be anchored by high-rise structures with ground-level pedestrian engagement opportunities surrounded by mid-rise buildings increasingly offering dense residential uses. Lexington’s Downtown should continue to be notable for its mix of uses and variety of transportation options. Parking should be addressed as a shared urban core asset, eliminating dedicated surface parking lots in favor of structures.
- Dense residential options
- Ground level pedestrian engagement
