Looking for ways to take advantage of an existing asset, our client wanted to explore the possibility of removing a hill of stone to create a pad with proper sightlines to attract national tenants.
Working from the site plan prepared by our civil engineering partners, we created a virtual computer-generated model of the site in an as-is condition. The model was expanded to include the areas up and down the highway. We modified the site to create building pads with the required sightlines. Sightlines were demonstrated with fly-arounds and user augmented reality. The stone that was removed to create those pads was repurposed used as fill and base for the new buildings.
The result was an expanded shopping center with national tenants and a state wine and spirits store using an existing land asset.
