With an eye on flexibility and livability, Memphis real estate professionals continue to turn toward mixed-use developments. Successful local projects are proving the city's mindset on mixed use is shifting, and more could be on the way.
When Liberty Center opens in Cincinnati next fall, it will leverage its full-scale mixed-use offerings—such as a CineBistro theater, lofty lineup of retail, restaurants, residential and office space, as well as lush landscaping and natural gathering places—to bring a sense of place and community to the area. The project is being developed by Steiner + Associates and Bucksbaum Retail Properties.
Urban Design Associates (UDA) recently collaborated with the State Unitary Enterprise “Research and Project Institute of Moscow City Master Plan” (IGP) on the design of the new business center for recently annexed territory southwest of Moscow’s city center.
With the assistance of Urban Design Associates, a design charrette was held in April 2014 to explore mixed-use development concepts with participation from UNUM, the downtown campus of University of Tennessee Chattanooga (UTC), the City, developers, and major stakeholders.
