ROSSETTI has been featured in this month's Shopping Center Business for our work in creating a year-round destination district in Green Bay, WI. The piece stresses the importance of anchoring developments with vibrant districts that become catalysts for regional growth. A mixed-use district attracts people all-year, not just on game days. "There is a symbiotic relationship between being smart about development and trying to think about ways to use something like a stadium to improve the economy," said Jon Disbrow, Director of Architecture and Principal at ROSSETTI.

As Detroit seeks to reclaim its status as a world-class city, the importance of mixed-use neighborhoods will be at the forefront of the revival to ensure the city can recapture the decades of population loss and patterns of single-family home sprawl. It will be critical to apply thoughtful urban design practices to these neighborhoods as a way to redefine city living and pave a road for inclusive housing.
