Rethinking and Repurposing Our Commercial Areas

With the proliferation of online shopping, food delivery services, rideshare, and the ongoing climate crisis, retail destinations are at a critical point. To address shifting conditions and public habits, these spaces must move into the 21st century economy, embracing a mixture of uses and thinking beyond traditional ideas of shopping.
