Aldea Images Updated with More Detail

Conceptual images of the Town Center section of the upcoming Aldea smart code development that were discovered in June have been updated with more detail, helping to create a more realistic picture of what the project may eventually look like.

Most structures, landscapes, and streetscapes have been colored in, and previously blank spaces have been filled in with new details.

The layout of the Town Center area has not changed, with a fashion retail anchor, a theater, and retail liners fronting the development's tree-lined Rambla. Housing still sits to the east with a smart-code designed Walmart accessible by a large pedestrian walkway/staircase to the west.

The Rambla intersects with the future Mesa Park Boulevard in a roundabout which will be lined by two hotels and other commercial space. There will be zero setbacks along these stretches, helping the area feel like a true urban development. Tree-lined streets will help shield pedestrians from the sun.
