The design of mixed use neighborhoods and buildings requires a deep understanding of urban placemaking, economics, governance and legal concerns. glaserworks understands these issues.
We have designed projects that mix residential, office, retail and entertainment uses both vertically and horizontally. We have designed mixed use projects of many acres and of a few thousand square feet. Our clients are 'for-profit' developers, non-profit developers, governments and businesses striving to create vibrant communities whose primary amenity is an environment of multiple uses.
Mixed use developments gather economic strength and community vitality from their shared environments. Mixing uses grants opportunities to create special places where chance meetings between business people, residents, patrons and parishioners occur on a daily basis. But special places do not happen by chance, or by simply drafting multiple types of uses in close proximity to each other. Special, memorable places worth caring about, especially where uses are mixed, are purposefully designed and crafted by those with skill and creativity. They are designed by professionals who can create high value places cost effectively--and still figure out where to park the car.
At glaserworks, we have the skill and experience.
