The 75-acre Spectrum Towne Center incorporates aspects of large format power centers, lifestyle retailing, and the classic “restaurant row”. The project includes over 800,000 sf of sales area and completes the 71 Freeway retail district, whose initial component was the original Spectrum Center located directly across Grand Avenue. With thirty-three distinct buildings and over 4,000 parking spaces, special consideration was given to the placement of pedestrian plazas and “nodes” that link the various elements of the center together.
The site was strategically planned to maximize the potential of the triangular-shaped property by locating the largest retailers at the center of the project and grouping smaller tenants at opposite points. The apex of the parcel is reserved for dining and other pedestrian-oriented uses that are the architectural focus of the development. Modulated building massing and a varied palette of materials and finishes were provided to reinforce human-scale proportions and break-up the three-quarter mile long backbone of the project. Design and Drawings are done in conjunction with McClellanHunter & GFBA Architects.
