The transformational master plan leverages creative program, branding, architecture and planning to create an iconic identity of place while successfully integrating complex civic and private programmatic needs with a thoughtful mix of preservation, re-interpretation and new construction.
Leveraging sensitive adaptive reuse strategies, the District seeks to celebrate the site’s history & iconic architecture by celebrating the historic Montgomery Park building and American Can Complex. Breathing life back into the urban fabric with programmed and active uses, new programs and a refreshed identity caters to the existing workers and surrounding community needs.
The human-scaled urban fabric and circulation encourage interaction, sense of discovery, and provide experiential moments of surprise and delight that draw people through the district. A variety of open spaces of multiple scales engage the surrounding neighborhoods and create a functional 18 hour a day destination that appeals to a broad range of users.
