This study team deemed major portions of the corridor are either underutilized or are open land that are prime locations for high-density urban-scaled development. Massing options based on existing codes were modeled for each city block, and a breakdown of the areas of different programmatic elements was derived. The final iteration of the study shows a 3D massing model of the Loyola/Rampart Corridor populated with buildings, some of which are height constrained, under a modified zoning regulation.
The current model shown in this report represents a desirable outcome for the developed density, scale, and mass of the Loyola/Rampart Corridor. Capitalizing on underutilized sites along this corridor, the study showed more than 400,000 square feet of commercial space and more than 6,500,000 square feet of residential space can be developed to rejuvenate this area of downtown.
