View Executive Summary 

This capstone project created a Town Campus Development Plan and conceptual designs for a property on East Main Street in Buena Vista, Colorado. The development plan focuses on connecting main street, creating a town campus, and incorporating mixed-use development through architectural designs that complement Buena Vista’s existing downtown. This plan incorporates the design of a new Town Hall, Community Center Annex, and live/work units to expand programming needs. This future development will benefit local residents and create increased capacity for social, recreational, and civic activities.
