The plan includes extensive mixed-use development including major national retailers, local shops, and apartments. The master plan for the transit oriented area, including the new triangular shaped public plaza and retail street, was established by the area CDC and an urban design consortium, of which Marc Wouters was a design leader. The plan includes new zoning and form-based code guidelines for the area. 

As Partner for Torti Gallas and Partners, Marc Wouters also led the design of the central mixed-use building. The front facade has been angled to maximize the quality of a new public plaza. The master plan received a ULI Award of Excellence in 2010.
