Mixed-use projects begin with the solid planning principles of establishing a unique "genus loci" or sense of place. The mix of users must work not only individually, but collectively as well. Balancing the needs of ground floor users with the functional requirements of upper floor users is sccomplished through our intimate knowledge of each user.  In the end , people experience a place and not just a store..
