Capitalizing on several planned hospitals within the community, the Marketing Strategy for The Reserve proposes the creation of the Central Sub-District, an intensive mixed-use urban district based on health-sciences and related uses. The core of the Central Sub-District is located on Matlock Road between East Broad Street and Heritage Parkway, and extends several blocks to the east and west of Matlock Road.
This Sub-District houses a wide range of uses including hospital, office buildings, support housing, assisted care facilities, service retail, eateries, and other support uses. These uses congregate on a local, gridded street system defined by smaller building setbacks and sidewalks with pleasant urban streetscapes. Highly designed and landscaped intersections are intended to form major "punctuation points" within the community fabric creating signature addresses for adjacent land uses.
Building Corner Treatments
|Building Corner Treatments
Here is an excerpt from the DESIGN STANDARDS for the Reserve: "Buildings should reinforce a strong and pronounced corner condition at street intersections. Corner clips and other design approaches that do not form an orthogonal corner should not be allowed except at intersections identified on the Reserve Open Space Plan as
having pocket parks. All buildings should be designed to accommodate City of Mansfield required visibility triangles without compromising the corner design.
Sidewalk Entry Hierarchy
Entrances into residential buildings that do not follow a format with street-level entrances for each unit shall use the following:
Carriage way— A twelve (12) foot wide entrance centered on the building and
paved to complement sidewalk design while bringing the sidewalk experience into an internal private courtyard. Each carriage way may have a privacy gate within the building volume that is designed to allow views into the courtyard beyond.
Secondary entry — A six (6) foot wide entrance with ornamental entrance gate accessed by a stair stoop and defined by low cheek walls and planters at the sidewalk The stoop entrance is intended to carry the pedestrian up to the level of the internal building elevation thirty (30) inches above finished sidewalk grade on average Mailboxes, bicycle racks, and trash receptacles should be grouped around these secondary entries.
These and other standards for the Cental District will ensure enhance value of this areas for years to come.
