Community Design Solutions (CDS) worked with the Northwest
Side Community Development Corporation (NWSCDC) to develop
visioning concepts for an Eco Tech Campus bounded by Capitol
Drive to the south, 27th Street to the east, Hope Avenue (including
the Century City Tower and DRS buildings just north of Hope) to the
north, and the railroad to the west.
Ultimately, two design schemes were developed that sought to
preserve IH (industrial heavy) in order to create and maintain
jobs for local residents. Both schemes have a heavy focus on
stormwater management elements, clean energy supplies, and a
pedestrian focused scale to enhance Capitol Drive.
