Legacy is a large mixed-use development located on a site with strong natural amenities – gently rolling hills, mature stands of trees, a spring-fed lake and proximity to the large Lake Zorinsky Recreational Area. Incorporating these natural amenities as focal points within the final master plan, the Legacy Master Plan sets a framework for developing a plan that has a strong local identity, has diverse uses and programs, and values the ecology and natural systems.

Legacy is organized around a central town green. Office, retail and apartment uses are built around this central civic space. To the north, big box retail has optimal street frontage. To the south, the mixed-use development continues down the hill to the residential neighborhood organized around a formal residential boulevard and park. The plan is interwoven with sidewalks, greenways and street furnishings, offering options for the pedestrian and making it a human-scaled neighborhood.

Michael Winstanley AIA AICP was the Design Principal for the project during his tenure as Design Director at Leo A Daly.
