Retail Traffic


Design Collective is a 105-person, multidisciplinary design firm with offices in Baltimore, Durham, N.C., and Scottsdale, Ariz. We offer a unique set of qualifications. We have solidified our reputation as an exceptional design firm that provides unparalleled service and expertise in the areas of planning, urban design, architecture, landscape architecture and interior architecture. Our particular focus has been on urban mixed-used development, Smart Growth and New Urbanism, corridor and neighborhood revitalization, sustainable design, brownfield redevelopment, adaptive reuse, historic preservation, traditional neighborhood developments and transit-oriented developments, retail and entertainment, town and gown, and campus-edge developments combining retail with student housing.

With over four million square feet of retail mixed-use projects on the boards, Design Collective's project portfolio of urban mixed-use projects accommodate and sensitively juxtapose diverse uses including retail, residential, commercial, entertainment, institutional and transportation. We have extensive experience in the design of residential, office, retail and entertainment projects, which ideally suits us to the development of complex, urban mixed-use developments. Our ability to seamlessly integrate these complex combinations while simultaneously creating vibrant places is nationally recognized. In cities like Baltimore, Philadelphia, Daytona Beach, Fla., St. Louis, Mo., Sacramento, Calif., and abroad, these projects have served as catalysts to revitalize and energize surrounding neighborhoods.

Several projects currently in design include Ballpark Village in St. Louis, a mixed-use development adjacent to the new Busch Stadium; Daytona Live!, a retail entertainment complex with residences and offices across from the Daytona 500 Speedway in Florida; Sora Hill, a town center featuring over 1.6 million square feet of development near Cleveland, Ohio; and Rouzan, a mixed-use neighborhood in Baton Rouge, La.
