We considered the project ideal for implementation of the American principles of new urbanism. The New Urban Movement consists of traditional neighborhood design principles that are the core elements for designing cities, towns, and villages. We proposed a design solution for the Carson center with these principles in mind. We considered four different master plan alternatives.
We developed the Meandering Boulevard Master Plan idea, which proposed a central plaza/activity area. There would be an office plaza that would include a business center and office spaces. A theater plaza would be located opposite the office plaza. The Meandering Boulevard would accommodate small stores and market places. People would wander through these narrow streets and experience a unique shopping experience.
