General Growth Properties Inc. will host "Vision in Focus: The Neighborhoods," at 7:30 p.m. July 9 at the Spear Center in the company's headquarters at 10275 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia. It is the fourth in a series of meetings that followed the April presentation of the draft master plan for Columbia's Town Center.
At the meeting, GGP representatives will look at each of the Town Center neighborhoods that will be affected by the master plan and highlight the overall characteristics of each, including the mix of uses, densities and building height recommendations. The previous "Vision in Focus" forums addressed sustainability/environment, transit/traffic and culture.
"Just as we did in the previous three 'Vision in Focus' presentations, we will share with the community specific elements of the draft master plan. At this meeting, we will focus on particular aspects envisioned for the individual neighborhoods," GGP's regional vice president Gregory F. Hamm said in a statement.
