Creating the Heart and Soul of a New, Master Planned Development in CentennialThe Jones District is a 42 acre, mixed-use, transit-oriented development in the southeastern 1-25 corridor at Dry Creek, located at the Dry Creek Station Light Rail stop. The development is centered around a large central common area, which is currently undefined. Our challenge was to create a concept for this central area that creates a defining element for the project, and helps contribute to the brand overall.
Recruit a multi-disciplinary team, including architecture, urban design, fine art, landscape architecture and programming to ideate a one of a kind solution.
This central area was grand in scale and complicated in grade, and needed a solution that not only differentiated this project but also created interest and activity and an amenity for the future residents, hotel guests, office workers, diners and area residents. We, as a collective, created a multi-dimensional solution that helped solved to all these parameters. This solution is both a landscape design solution as well as part arts district, part market, part restaurant/grow house, offering interest and activity day and night.
