Retail Development

Creating people places

The concept of Retail Development is shifting away from single-use retail platforms towards mixed-use districts that scale to fit the places in which they live. Rather than centering on enclosed destinations for a single purpose, MG2 views these opportunities as an urban design problem. With that in mind, we design destinations that are inclusive and provide holistic life amenities, activities, and experiences that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor access. This trend towards urbanization promotes a socially connected world. By activating the interstitial spaces between buildings where social interactions reside, we infuse soul into daily life, advancing the live, work, play model to the next level.
