  • A 125-room hotel
  • 185,000 square feet of new retail space

  • And so much more!

“We are creating a destination that has a mix of uses and a project that can be developed as parts in a redevelopment concept designed to be tackled in sections,” commented, Aaron Domini, senior planner.

OHM Advisors completed the first draft of the plan including a comprehensive integration of the branding campaign, market analysis, stakeholder interviews, public engagement, environmental analysis, land planning and urban design. The firm will continue to play an integral role in this dynamic regional destination. The final plan will be presented mid-September 2016.
