The vision for Crown Centre blends multi-family buildings with office and retail spaces, encouraging pedestrian activity and use throughout all hours of the day. An extensive network of open spaces and walking trails connect the different uses, creating a natural oasis within the urban mixed use setting.
The first phase of development features two large water feature lakes, visible from the main entry road. In addition to fulfilling stormwater management requirements for the development and roadway, these lakes form a common space for the community. Informal lawn areas, lounge seating nooks, shaded trellis structures, and a performance area provide communal spaces where casual meetings and impromptu exchanges occur. Meanwhile, meandering paths, wooden boardwalks, a rock waterfall, and numerous overlooks compose a restful backdrop for residents and employees to relax and recharge.
