Projects

  • Pasadena, California: In 1964 the State of California seized a large swath of Pasadena’s land, demolishing thousands of homes in order to extend the 710 Freeway north. A citizen-led movement stalled the project, however, leaving a freeway stub that interrupts the street grid and neighborhoods. The 710 Freeway Reclaim, a community-based initiative, proposes to rebuild the urban fabric destroyed over 50 years ago.

  • Fresno, California: This new plan addresses the long-term challenges of Fresno’s 7,200-acre core area, including the Fulton Corridor, the historic Fulton Mall and surrounding neighborhoods.

  • Pasadena, California: Moule & Polyzoides developed design guidelines for the City of Pasadena that promote architectural and design excellence in the residential, retail and mixed-use development found along many of Pasadena’s principal corridors.

  • Cotati, California: The faded downtown of Cotati, a Sonoma County city with a rich local history, has been revitalized with a charrette-led specific plan and form-based code that articulates historically sensitive restoration and new development.

  • Tehachapi, California: The Tehachapi form-based general plan, based on an urban-to-rural transect, focuses on understanding how this community can succeed economically while preserving its rural small town character.

  • Ventura, California: The Ventura Downtown Code is one of the first Form-Based Zoning Codes in California—the result of an extensive and detailed analysis of downtown Ventura’s existing streets, blocks, buildings, public open spaces and landscape.

  • Biloxi, Mississippi: After the ravages of Hurricane Katrina, Moule & Polyzoides was invited to participate in a national charrette to provide emergency urban design services for the reconstruction of Biloxi.
