We've got an approximately 40 acre strip center that will be going dark in about a year as all three major anchors move to new, larger locations on the freeway. For perspective on the existing building size: it contained a Target, JCPenny, and Best Buy. The existing structures are pretty typical suburban-style strip--oversized parking, no relationship to the street, little architectural interest, etc. The property has excellent rail & road access, with frontage on two minor arterial streets, a major gateway arterial that leads to downtown about a mile away, and the freeway.
There will not be a regional commuter rail stop there, but the rail ROW is wide enough to allow something like an ultra-light rail/cable car to run alongside at some point in the future, or an express bus lane, to reach the regional station in downtown.
We are looking for examples of similar strip centers that have been reinvented as mixed use projects. Bonus points for examples of public-private partnerships! It would be especially good if someone had examples of Tax Increment Reinivestment Zones (or something similar) being used as a carrot to promote appropriate redevelopment and make it more financially feasible.
Though this has not been discussed at all, there is a 30 acre housing authority site adjacent to the property that separates it from a college football stadium. I've tinkered in my head with redeveloping that along with it to create connectivity with a sports venue and bump those economies of scale up a bit with a larger site.
