Mashpee Commons, Mashpee, MA

In 1986, the owners of an aging strip mall on Cape Cod in Massachusetts held a design charrette with the community to determine a direction for the property. Since then, the developers of the site have been realizing their vision of a new mixed-use community following the traditional New England town style. The development currently contains 77 homes, with plans for additional residential development underway, though mired by controversy.
