Floura Teeter was commissioned to study opportunities for revitalization in the Hollywood Commercial District. We started with evaluation of current conditions and identification of opportunities for revitalized retail uses, increased pedestrian and bicycle use, and integrated treatment of stormwater management and green space within the Hollywood Commercial District.
Goals for the Hollywood Commercial District include:
The recommendations to achieve these goals were guided by three themes: Eco Districts, Wellness, and Active Design. The themes were inspired by the current mix of retailers which include Mom’s Organic Market and REI, a school, a greenspace corridor, and playground adjacent to the shopping center. Recommendations were guided by the themes and included a wellness trail and improved pedestrian and bicycle amenities. The products presented to the City of College Park include a site inventory, existing conditions report and conceptual design recommendations for neighborhood improvements as shown through a series of plan and section drawings; photographic examples of design precedent; and an outline of phasing to describe priority for implementation of improvements.
