You're invited to explore economic and design options for the site at Howard and Ashland through an interactive modeling exercise! Participants will create hypothetical development options that can represent a mix of retail or commercial spaces, housing units, and green space. As community members build their proposals, they will be sketched by design advisors, while a real estate advisor calculates development costs and revenues.
