• Yellow-lined curbs are not common in America. Is this to take the place of a painted curb, which traditionally means no parking? - Steven Vance

Mosaic District

Newer Older

Curbless, reverse crowned street, lots of LEDs, bulb-outs, and generous trees for the "fashion district." EDENS, the developer, principally owns grocery-anchored neighborhood shopping centers (a/k/a minimalls) throughout the South.

(For now, the aerial view in Flickr's map shows the previous site condition: quite a contrast.)

    For a second I thought that was the updated Metreon in SF: www.westfield.com/metreon/revitalize/

    Alex Wilson often talks about using reverse crowned streets: less sewer infrastructure to maintain.

    I would guess that the curbless, reverse crowned approach here principally facilitates shoppers wandering across the street. The tree pits certainly look ample enough to handle a good chunk of stormwater drainage, though.

    And yes, the yellow line is probably in lieu of painting the not-really-curb yellow. I assume that this is a private way, rather than a public street, since it has unconventional signage.
