Henderson showed how team designers linked the aspirations of community members with strategies that recognized and leveraged the neighborhood’s industrial and agricultural heritage; that considered growth in bite-sized increments; and that built on what was already in place to achieve a more walkable/bikeable mix of commerce and housing.
