A ribbon-cutting event with a short intro of Framework’s Colonial Plaza (Motor Ave transformation) project in the City of Lakewood in Tacoma, WA. Motor Ave had a lot of Lakewood's history, but the street faded because of the completion of Lakewood’s new shopping center. The city wants to re-claim and re-market the history, and transform the place into a new core for the city.
When you go to a city, spend some time to observe. You'll find the major cores of the city are usually in a pedestrian-oriented/no-car area. You'll find that city core and walkable area are usually a combination. Walking area makes the culture and the experience stronger. You'll find that in Asian cities and European cities too.
