About the site

Pine Curve is located to the east of Pine Drive and presents more development space than the other My Mainstreet sites. For this reason, several development possibilities could occur on this site.

At the end of the My Mainstreet project, two different development proposals were possible for the site. The amount of space dedicated to the different uses will change depending on the final design that is adopted by the town.

Greater Downtown Zoning District

This district seeks to create a destination where the community comes together to live, work, shop and play. Development must also provide usable space and allow for easy orientation and convenient access to all visiting the area, no matter their mode of transportation.

Market Analysis

A market analysis outlines what the economy will realistically support in the Town of Parker. The goal of the market analysis was to:

  • Analyze market demands for specific community needs and identify the changing market demands and demographics

  • Inventory current business types, industries and commercial spaces and analyze what works well

  • Conduct a financial analysis to see what kind of businesses the community can support

Grocery Store Anchored Neighborhood Shopping District

A retail and restaurant complex features a wide range of shops and dining options for those visiting an area. In most cases, these shops will be on the ground floor with either office or living space on the upper floors.

Additional Medium-Density Downtown Housing

Medium density housing will bring additional options to those looking to live in downtown Parker. Because of its proximity to downtown, these units would need to feature the same architectural elements as the rest of downtown Parker. Medium density downtown housing could include townhomes and duplexes, both for sale and for rent.


Amenities for this site could include:

  • Plazas for lingering or outdoor seating

  • Designed open space that maintain the view corridor to downtown

  • Ample parking space

What makes a good downtown? 

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