EXPLORING A CONNECTED AND WALKABLE FUTURE FOR THE INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT 

Zones and strategies

The Community Design Resource Center developed a series of design proposals and recommendations for future development within the International Management District. Specifically, the work focused on housing, economic development, public space, transportation, and pedestrian amenities. In addition, six geographic focus areas were identified to test ideas and strategies for future development and establish priorities for new development and public improvements.  

 

Our goal was to emphasize and build on the existing strengths and resources of the District, while looking toward a future that is connected by transit, walkable, and home to diverse housing choices and mixed-uses. Enhancing the overall identity of the area was achieved by first understanding how the District’s geographic areas are unique and building on these qualities, and second by developing a set of district-wide design strategies that build on the more general identity of the area.
