Rolling Mill Hill and Rutledge Hill Neighborhood
The Design Center’s recommendations for the site are governed by a main principle of the design of cities: the neighborhood and district are the fundamental building blocks of great cities. This implies that quality growth should be considered a diverse systematic endeavor rather than an isolated event. Because past efforts to develop Rolling Mill Hill did not address this principle directly, the full potential of this area has not been explored. To address this potential, the design center study investigates building a site, as opposed to site planning.
