Plaza San Agustín
Plaza San Agustín Master Plan - Tucson, Arizona (2001 - present)
The proposed Plaza San Agustín envisions a mixed-use residential/commercial Plaza in the heart of downtown. The site is the parking lot across Stone Ave. from St. Augustine's Cathedral (1896). The Plaza will be shaped by the placement of multi-story, mixed-use buildings, with commercial space on the ground floor (shops, cafes, offices) and three level of housing above. The dwellings will be privately owned as town-houses, and each will have a roof terrace or balcony for private outdoor space. Beneath the Plaza will be a three-level underground parking structure with space for 350 cars, providing parking for the commercial space, residences, and additional public functions. In total, 20,000 sq. ft. of commercial space is proposed at ground level, with 90,000 sq. ft. of housing above, totaling 62 dwelling units. The key to bringing downtown back to life is simple: we need people living there.
