With the city facing a number of maturation issues including the lack of a true urban center, suburban sprawl, and rapid expansion, Town Center was planned as a modern downtown and solution for future development patterns to establish a dense urban core for this progressive, thriving metropolis.
To create a walkable district, planners established a pedestrian-friendly street grid enhanced with streets capes, "Main Street" -style storefronts, open spaces, and public parking. The vibrant atmosphere of the Town Center has provided the local community with a delightful place to gather, dine, shop, live, and work in a unique urban environment.
This $500 million 17-block public-private endeavor has become a dynamic mixed-use district attracting tenants such as a Westin Hotel, Sandler Center for the Performing Arts, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, PF Chang's, and Brooks Brothers. Today, Town Center brings together people in a community setting to make their own history and experiences.
