Actually, I don't think the rendering above my initial post was displaying when I commented... or I wouldn't have sounded as optimistic.
Basically, the description in the OWH article (below) sounded quite wonderful. Â The schematic rendering above, however, looks like a very typical suburban PUD. What worries me most now, having seen that graphic, is that it seems to feature the dreaded and pointless "buffers" between the single-family housing, multi-family housing, and the retail area.
As envisioned, Fremont Commons will be home to about 250,000 square feet of retail space, 15,000 square feet of office space, 250 multifamily housing units, 119 lots for single-family homes, a 135-room hotel and 150 senior-living units. The development will be wrapped around a 23.5-acre lake and park.
Brad Nelsen said he pictures a movie theater, restaurants and retail shopping, all within walking distance, in a development anchored by Lake Victor Community Park.
As mentioned, though this sounds like mixed use, it really is a suburban PUD, which puts it somewhere on the spectrum between Village Point on the low end of land-use, and MTC and AK Village on the high end.
