ARCHITECTURE July 2018 • SHOPPING CENTER BUSINESS • 53 hood that it's in." KTGY has also designed several walk- able destinations that allow connectivity to the existing mall or shopping center and incorporate a local arts and music environment with food and entertain- ment. "Radial organization engages custom- ers from all directions and maintains a strong connection to the existing cen- ter," says Perkowitz. "The buildings are placed organically to form small, intimate plazas that lead into a main central hub. Sidewalk and landscape improvements create a sense of arrival and enhance the ambiance of the new destination to draw repeat visitors." KTGY's R+D Studio has designed "Re-Habit," a self-supporting mixed-use transitional housing concept that repur- poses a vacant, big box store to smaller, retail spaces, while providing housing, employment and support for homeless individuals. Residents rotate housing chores, like working in the kitchen or keeping the dining hall clean and grow fresh ingredients to be used in the resi- dential kitchen and small food shops. Food has been widely discussed as one of the saviors of retail destinations, but many architects see food-based tenants as necessary only in centers where a great se- lection of food doesn't already exist. You can't create the demand for more food, but you can deliver supply to an under- served market. "A year or maybe two years ago, food and beverage was taking up almost 40 percent of all new development projects on our boards," says Campione. "We have actually seen that diminish in the past year. While it is still desirable and having the right mix of food, entertainment and other ways to extend one's trip is para- mount, we are not seeing the term of the lease affecting our current designs. What we do see is less spec building. We are not going into construction document phase on anything that does not have a lease executed." While food halls have been widely used, they are now commonplace in secondary markets — and wildly popular with con- sumers. New developments designed by KTGY, The Exchange, located in Salt Lake City's downtown core, and Central Park Station ONE's office building in Staple- ton, Colorado, will both feature food halls. "The key to the success of the food hall is its uniqueness and the developer's ability to tailor the experience to the local community and maintain its authenticity by providing inspiring food, design and architecture," says Perkowitz. PARKING With ride-sharing services, the arrival of autonomous vehicles and many markets becoming more urban in general, the need for vast fields of parking is becom- ing a thing of the past. Many architects are keeping an eye toward the future as they consider how much parking needs to be at a center. Municipalities, as well, have kept an eye toward the future and altered parking ratios, or granted exceptions to requirements. "Today, fewer parking spaces are need- ed, which presents an opportunity to add additional uses like residential and Destin Commons, Destin, FL Owner: Turnberry Associates Installing contractor: Roof Specialties Architect: JPRA Architects Distributor: CRS – Commercial Roofing Specialties Profile: Snap-Clad Colors: Arcadia Green, Slate Gray, Terra Cotta Destin Commons, a premier open-air lifestyle center, is clad with Snap-Clad metal roofing panels in three complementary PAC-CL AD Cool Colors.
