Strip Commercial

Davis Commons - Davis, California

3 This center is situated on the edge of Davis' downtown area.  Original proposals for this site called for the traditional large bank of buildings set at the back of an extensive parking lot.  This, of course, caused a whirlwind of controversy.  The developer decided to pull out all the stops and created a design that reverses the traditional strip center site plan: parking is situated to the rear while a pedestrian plaza sits on the highly visible street frontage.
A pedestrian paseo, complete with outdoor seating for the adjacent restaurants gives passage from the parking lot to the "front" of the stores.  Rich architectural detailing with large picture windows completes this very impressive project.
