Urban Mixed-Use


Urban mixed-use place types are pedestrian-oriented and within easy walking distance to serve surrounding neighborhoods. In addition to offering a range of residential options, they provide locations for people to shop, eat, socialize and take care of daily activities. Urban mixed-use areas will develop as medium- to high-density walkable urban neighborhoods that encourage social connections because their mix of uses, multimodal infrastructure and public spaces create a vibrant public realm. Vertically, mixed-use buildings that frame the sidewalk and the public realm include retailers and restaurants primarily located on the first floor (with higher first-floor heights to support active uses). Multifamily, office or hotel uses are located above the first floor. The Rock Island Urban Center will be anchored by an urban mixed-use place type.
