Whether a project is an established urban shopping icon, a high-density mixed-use urban infill project, or a suburban shopping center, Westwood has the experience and expertise to make your vision a reality. These are the destinations where the public gathers, shops, dines, lives, and works. Understanding how the owner, tenants, and public will use the site is critical to the success of the project.

Site Specific Design

Retail and mixed-use developments are unique because they are environments intended to be used by everyone. The Westwood design team understands how site visibility, orientation, access, and integration into the surrounding community are important to successful development.

Creative Solutions

Westwood understands that the development area of a retail or mixed-use project must be maximized to create a successful investment for the client, but sometimes site constraints, codes, and ordinances can present challenges. We think outside the box to deliver creative yet functional solutions while understanding the economics of the development.

Infrastructure Considerations

The civil engineer is often the first person on the project and is responsible for designing and building the infrastructure necessary for the site. This includes designing roads, sidewalks, sewers, drainage systems, and utilities. We also consider the environmental impact of the project, as well as the potential for future expansion and growth.
