Mixed-use spaces bring people together in compact developments, creating economic efficiencies and encouraging social interaction. These spaces create livable and vibrant neighborhoods. Residents can go to work, buy groceries, grab a drink with coworkers, meet friends for dinner and go home – all without leaving the complex. It is truly a “live-work-play” environment.
The benefits of a mixed-use center range from improving the area’s quality of life and environment to economic gains for everyone, including the developers, investors and communities. These projects bring density to the area by attracting residents and businesses which helps improve the overall safety of the neighborhood while the residential components of these developments create a built-in customer base for the retail elements.
