What an amazing week!
We are so grateful to all who came out and spoke up last week. Your input has been invaluable and greatly influenced the direction of this project. We wanted this to be a community-guided vision, and you have helped us to achieve that goal.
Now, for a quick recap….
On Monday, April 8, Peter Bazeli, of Weitzman Associates, and Jeff Speck, of Speck and Associates, both sat down with NewsRadio92.3’s Andrew McKay to give an intro in what to expect this week. You can listen to Peter’s interview here and Jeff’s interview here.
Bazeli’s marketability study showed that our town is poised for great, positive growth in the coming years, which creates great opportunity for our design team to really take Pensacola to the next level. To see the study in it’s entirety, click here.
At our first public session on Tuesday, April 9, Bazeli, Speck and Marina Khoury, of DPZ, presented their initial thoughts for the future of the West Main Street parcels, which included nearly 1,800 residential units and opportunity for amazing retail and entertainment options. You can see those slides here.
Thank you to the Pensacola News Journal, WKRG News and Inweekly for coming out to cover the event!
After meeting with community members and city and county officials all throughout the week, Thursday’s presentation really showed how well the design team listened. If you were unable to attend, you can watch the live feed here.
We are also happy to share their slides from the final presentation with you here so you can take a closer look at all of the exciting things being proposed.
We’ve also got a great video wrap up of the week that you can see by clicking here!
Thank you again to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules last week!
