ULX: More than a Mix-Up
By The Urban Land Institute
Ideally, mixed-use projects achieve some kind of symbiosis among their elements, creating a whole that is more than the sum of the parts. All completed in the past five years, the following ten projects (listed alphabetically) represent innovative takes on combining product types. Some repurpose and rehabilitate historic structures; some take advantage of density and synergies to attain a high level of sustainable design; some blend public and private partners to pool financing and meet the goals of multiple constituencies; and some represent large-scale interventions that aim to expand open space and enhance the public realm with unusual siting strategies and pedestrian-oriented environments.
