PlaceWorks developed a comprehensive framework to create an “urban village” that will serve as Seaside’s downtown. The specific plan establishes a node of activity that can support increased intensity and a mix of uses, including residential units with ground-floor retail. The specific plan also includes design concepts for a mixed-use project with a public library and parking garage; new residential development in the adjacent neighborhood; and a future multimodal transit hub and light rail station.
