Heritage Fields Lifelong Learning District

As a result of the work done for the TOD District, Heritage Fields Lifelong Learning District is a master planning effort to help envision better integration, connectivity, and interrelationship of commercial uses in the district with planned residential densities. The commercial uses include research and development, campus/school uses from Pre-K to university level, and a main street as the commercial core of the district. The plan utilizes a system of open space as the framework for providing a quality urban environment that is pedestrian-friendly and improves connectivity between various development types and densities. 

Components of the open space system include: greenways linking to the Great Park, linear parks, pocket parks, quads, sports fields and venues, and streets fronted by buildings, not parking lots. A series of campus typologies are created that respond differently based on their location in the district and type of educational institution, offering a truly dynamic and integrated “lifelong learning” experience within a single neighborhood district adjacent to the Great Park.
