Standing at 500,000 square feet, this community centerpiece merges the retail and residential communities of Blakeney into one seamless experience. The apartments of Blakeney connected to this center give residents a social gathering space for their families and puts them in reach of entertainment. Including the children into this mix was a core principle for the design. Splash pads and play areas were placed near dining locations so parents or guardians could be aware of their children’s safety while still being able to enjoy their time out. This residential area is designed in a traditional layout to consider space as the main draw for residents. Alley-loaded garages, single-family homes with tree-lined streets, and vast sidewalk systems help cultivate the idea of a family-friendly community.
