SITE DEVELOPMENT

Architecture and Design Principles

CODE features an open-air, pedestrian gallery that promotes public circulation from the Mall to Water Street, creating a dynamically engaging new approach to the west end of our Mall. At the center of the site is an exterior courtyard, with a sunken water feature and amphitheater for public and private outdoor events. As the building gently climbs from the Mall to Water Street, a series of beautiful rooftops are populated with intensive green plantings.

 

The project provides a variety of retail spaces on its ground floor along with the main lobby entry on the Downtown Mall. A state-of-the-art 200+ seat theater serves both tenant specific uses and local community events.
