The work of this group was based on the principles of Great Streets as defined by Allan Jacobs in order to create a walkable mixed-use development while mantaining the industrial heritage of the neighborhood. A network of new streets, both vehicular and pedestrian only, was proposed to organize the site and better link it to the surrounding areas, including direct access to I-71. A small scale mixed-use retail-residential center is envisioned with an emphasis on entertainment with two major attractions, a multi-screen cinema and an outdoor amphitheater. In addition to providing a street connection across the existing railway barrier to the existing Oakley community, this scheme advocates for the residential redevelopment of the Robertson Road manufacturing area.
