Make it unique. Every new develop has the opportunity to become something special, a place people can point to as a place of community pride. Unfortunately, too often the lure of an easy profit is an expressway to Target/Safeway banality. I understand this won't be built unless it makes money but I truly believe architecture with a soul is the best long term investment. It doesn't have to be luxurious, just well designed and interesting.

I hope the project developers will consider retailers that are congruent with the local culture rather than forcing a Target/Safeway type of development. I'd suggest retaining a segment for kiosks for very small, local retailers to add life and connect to the neighborhood. That said, still gotta have Starbucks.

The community would benefit tremendously if the project provides an oasis where citizens can interact, shop, and live in safety. It's of great value to replace a depressing eyesore with color, nature, and architectural interest.

Dilapidated eyesore that looks like they dropped a suburban structure onto an urban site. It's generic with zero architectural interest and no relationship to the community.
