Before you tell me to search the threads! I know that there are many threads about big boxes. I have looked through them and the gallery and have not been able to find what I seek.
I need something specific. Most of the threads and picture examples are dealing with how the building looks. I will tackle that one later. What I am wanting is examples of GOOD site layout. You know, where a big box comes in and has it's little strip mall children and gets more creative?
We do not allow parking in front of commercial developments. Big boxes get around this by creating outlots in front of their parking area and then doing the same old site design. I want to find some examples where they did something like wrap the perimeter with the strip buildings or were more clever with their parking. Something. I need examples that are NOT in downtown urban areas, I need them in a more suburban setting.
I am dealing with a big box that is wanting to build on a parcel that is adjacent to a well thought out and planned new urbanist community. It would be nice if the big box would make an effort to change their design and fit in with the community better.
