Creating a Connection to Snider Plaza

The design for Hilltop Plaza creates a lively mixed-use development on the site of an office building that had been vacant for years. The site, which is adjacent to Snider Plaza, will become the terminus to the already prosperous outdoor retail environment. The building massing is explored in a way to pull any required program height near the main thoroughfare frontage while keeping the low-rise elements adjacent to the residential neighborhood. Special attention was given to privacy and sound transmission when adjacent to any residential neighbors. The street-level building articulation is designed to show a hierarchy of building entrance locations, identification of vertical circulation and inviting pedestrian connectivity as much as possible.
