Mukilteo Village Center
This planned development incorporates housing with a centralized retail core with community open space. Applying a woonerf concept to the design, the Village Center provides traffic calming, and low speeds to create a pedestrian-oriented space that can also be expanded into the main intersection for special events. HBB prepared streetscape and open space designs for this residential, office, and retail mixed-use development at the heart of the community. We emphasized the centralized retail plaza next to the urban park through additions of a clock tower and evergreen festival tree to serve as village landmarks. In addition, our design contributed to a “village” atmosphere through site furnishings, lighting fixtures, hanging baskets, and tree lined streets designed at an appropriate pedestrian scale.
