Claremont Village West Specific Plan and Design Guidelines
The City of Claremont retained RRM Design Group to prepare their Specific Plan and Site Re-use Plan. Providing extensive outreach, RRM led key stakeholder interviews, large-scale public workshops, design charrette interactive exercises, and in-depth media relations. RRM developed Adaptive Re-use Circulation Studies, an Urban Design Plan, Design Guidelines, and Design Review and Development Standards for different land use zones including retail, office, entertainment, light industrial, and a mix of residential uses. The project also devised a re-use strategy for a 40,000 sf vacant historic food processing facility and integrated multiple historic buildings. The Plan, Guidelines and Standards were adopted and now provide the basis for implementation of the City’s projects.
