Mosaic District, despite not being situated directly on top of a Metrorail station, has no problem getting people to come live, work, and play. Commercial and retail tenants are flocking to the Fairfax, VA, neighborhood, and residential buildings have no problem with occupancy rates. One reason why: Placemaking – which builds on a “local community’s assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people’s health, happiness, and well being.”
So why does placemaking work so well at Mosaic for so many? TransitScreen’s complimentary webinar featured a panel discussion about what goes into making a place developers choose to go — and what makes people want to follow.
Our panelists included:
Peter Melmed, Managing Director at Mill Creek Residential Trust
Abigail Adams, Lead Team Environment Manager at CustomInk
Lydia Shackelford, Senior Associate at Wells + Associates
