About PACE Lot 2

ABOUT The Site

With a placement between Mainstreet and the PACE Lot, PACE Lot 2 is a small strip of land that offers unique opportunities to developers, while also being a site that has potential of allowing residents a better access point to the PACE Center. 

What makes a good downtown

When analyzing what makes sense being developed at 19801 E. Mainstreet, it's important to consider what makes for a good downtown. Here are a few factors that combine to create a premium downtown area:

  • A mix of uses including ground floor restaurants with retail, professional offices or lofts on higher floors.
  • Places for visitors to stay overnight in downtown, including lodging and dwelling units.
  • Active ground floor uses that give people a reason to travel downtown with multiple uses to keep people visiting during the day and evening.
  • Attractive and safe spaces for those traveling by foot, bike or car.
  • A defined space that is clearly well marked and has a sense of place.
  • Public amenities and event spaces for civic, cultural and theme based events.
