Regional Center

A vibrant hub of commerce, employment, housing opportunities, and entertainment. These are places that include larger buildings with human-scale active ground levels, intentional open spaces and plazas, and walkable transportation networks, all to provide the user/resident with a unique experience. A mix of uses is required to cultivate a sustainable center that is adaptable to future conditions, and they should increasingly include higher-density residential options. They are most often located at the intersection of major roadways and along primary corridors.
