Most suburban commercial design creates a harsh environment where the sum total of public life consists of parking the car, rushing into the store, then rushing out and leaving.  People are beginning to ask, "is this all there will ever be?"

Good commercial design creates an environment that is a place "to be".  Instead of a building set at the back of a large parking lot, pedestrian life is encouraged with outdoor sitting areas, walkways, large display windows, etc.  The best projects are designed with convenient pedestrian connections to the surrounding neighborhood.
