MXD collaborated with Pond & Company to create the Johns Creek Town Center Plan, a strategic blueprint that will guide the growth and redevelopment of 192 acres of the Technology Park into a vibrant Town Center. Identified as the key next step in the City’s 2018 Comprehensive Plan, the Town Center Vision and Plan is the culmination of citizen feedback, surveys, and public workshops (using a hybrid approach of virtual and in-person meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic) over a 12-month process.
This plan will allow the City to proactively respond to changing trends by leveraging the existing assets in Johns Creek to position Technology Park as a unique destination that comprises a dynamic mix of land uses, vibrant public realm, and multi-modal connectivity. The Town Center Plan includes five overarching themes: arts, culture, wellness, sustainability, and innovation, which were transformed into design principles focusing on the Town Center’s identity and path forward. The plan also combines themes and design principles and elements to create a cohesive Town Center with a distinct identity and sense of place.
MXD & Pond looked to bridge the desires of residents and Technology Park businesses and property owners together with market data, providing for a Johns Creek-specific development program to implement in the Town Center.
