Despite years of planning and high occupancy rate the area has grown at a rapid rate creating new challenges and opportunities.

The Construction Boom has taken a hold of the island with the rebuilding of Park Avenue ,and the museum distract parking garage and the start of new projects such as ,new bike trails ,new concert pavilion, and New Lofts and Town homes under construction. Lets see what going on the.

Nothing like a good central park but this park has no beginning or ending the trail stretches for miles and passes through some of the city best landmark

Where to begin ?

Urban Park - Is a master plan community home of 50/50 50% residential and 50 %commercial creating a community with enough job to support itself creating less residential traffic. Home of the large Urban forest trail that goes around the island creating a beautiful scenery for cyclist ,joggers, or anyone who to see nature . Also home of the city zoo and Capital City Discovery Center

The Main Entrance to the island

The island before is was developed

Developers wanted a Mall or a Amusement Park . A battle between city council and the mayor was created.

In the end neither the Mall or Amusement Park was built. Both sides agreed to create a mixed used development

with 85% of the land being used for park land or any development that benefits the city such as museum or zoo .

With the other 15% going towards building of commercial and residential.
