Heritage Fields Main Street

Main Street for the Lifelong Learning District at Heritage Fields is a mixed-use, urban development that serves as the primary commercial area within the district. The vertical integration of multiple land uses in conjunction with intimate public spaces creates an environment that can be self-sustaining and meaningful to the neighborhoods of the district and surrounding areas. Main Street consists of one lane of two-way traffic with parallel parking activated by of three different urban typologies: the park, the street and the plaza.

 

The park serves as the northern gateway to Main Street and the civic quad to a university anchor. The street consists of 20-foot, tree-lined sidewalks, activated by café zones, merchandising, seating areas, street furnishings, and landscaping. The plaza serves as the main public space on Main Street and the southern gateway with primarily access from the 133 Freeway and Orange County Great Park. The plaza is enclosed by a mixed use hotel and office buildings, one on each side of the street, creating a visual architectural portal as the tallest buildings on the street. Parking is provided in surface parking lots and parking structures behind the uses fronting Main Street.
