New Grandview Town Center Designs-take a look!

September 21, 2015 8:56 AM

Good Monday Morning Neighbors,

Now that we've all had a good stretch and yawn, I want to thank you most sincerely for responding to my last blog post with your thoughts, reasoning, and opinions with regards to Grandview Town Center and to Judge Doyle Square. Interestingly the response was 50/50 for both questions-did you all plan that? I continue to welcome your thoughts so if you haven't yet responded but would like to, please do.

I want to bring one big item to your attention on this fine Monday. After continued discussion, Veridian and DSI have presented us with new designs for Grandview Town Center. These designs incorporate a lot of the issues raised by you all in regards to pedestrian access and placemaking, and of the urban design design commission, a crucial city committee in the development process. The buildings remain single use commercial space, not mixed use, due to financial constraints. Please take a look at the drafts and see what you think, and then hit 'reply' and let me know. I will be meeting with the design team later this week to incorporate your suggestions so please go ahead and suggest them.

Here we are. Please note that these are drafts, which is to say the colors and some design elements can change.

Once again, please reply and let me know your thoughts on the design changes, on the proposal in general, and anything else which is on your mind. We have a great dialogie going in regards to this project and I'm eager to continue it with you.

Thank you all for continuing to care and be invested in this great community,

Cordially yours

Amanda M-M Hall
