Energizing the Built Environment

For owners and investors seeking to create long-term value, mixed-use developments offer enormous opportunity. These projects offer compact, transit-oriented, walkable communities with a dynamic mix of housing, office, retail and amenities, where people gather to live, work, shop, dine, and play. Mixed-use development encourages a diverse range of housing, smart growth, sustainability and placemaking, enriching connections between people and the spaces they share. These projects layer together compatible land uses and, public amenities at various scales and intensities, energizing the built environment.

Multiple Forms, Lasting Character

Mixed-use projects can take on many forms, including vertical mixed-use buildings, horizontal mixed-use blocks, or mixed-use walkable neighborhoods. A mixed-use approach can optimize land use, enhance historic character, boost employment opportunities, and encourage well-being through greater social interaction and physical activity. TCC has deep experience developing the highest-profile, most vibrant mixed-use properties, offering a sophisticated blend of private, commercial, and public spaces. Our residential projects are developed and operated under the High Street Residential brand.
