Abstract:
Currently, traditional master planning for cities usually focuses on a single end-goal where land use is dictated for the next few decades, and a lot is assumed about the types of spaces that best respond to the needs of the surrounding community. The issue is that this approach doesn't take into account unforeseen changes in the markets that dictate land-use/density and it doesn't allow the community to feel invested in the development of their city. Long-term effects can lead to urban blight and a high percentage of vacant lots that will have negative impact towards the quality of life in the city. A strategy will be developed for implementing temporary transition sites within the phased development of Downtown Longwood around the new Sunrail station. These transition sites will cater to temporary uses and activities implemented by the community and perspective entrepreneurs, which help inform a more logical direction for future infill development and appropriate land uses withing redevelopment zones. Using temporary urbanism and open-ended master planning, Longwood will stay flexible and development can respond to changing markets.

Currently, traditional master planning for cities usually focuses on a single endgoal where land use is dictated for the next few decades, and a lot is assumed about the types of spaces that best respond to the needs of the surrounding community. is approach doesnt take into account unforeseen changes in the markets that dictate land-use/density and it doesnt allow the community to feel invested in the development of their city. Long-term eects can lead to urban blight and a high percentage of vacant lots that will have negative impact towards the quality of life in Longwood. e overall goal is to develop a strategy that shows dierent scenarios of how Downtown Longwood can follow a redevelopment plan that allows it to adapt to changing market trends and provides the means necessary for the community to be invested in the growth of Longwood. Flexibility in development comes from ex zones designated during each phase of construction. Within these ex zones, the community and entrepreneurs will invest in temporary uses and activities that try and respond to the needs of redevelopment areas and surrounding neighborhoods during that phase of construction. Utilizing ex zones to inform future land-use/density allows Longwood to establish a more logical and necessary program for the current phase of development. ey also allow the community to take part in the discovery of needed uses, and makes them part of the growth of Longwood. project introduction | Project Impetus01

URBAN BLIGHTThese issues can eventually lead to an increase of urban blight in cities. The health of communites can be deteriorated by increasing umemployment, life in the city making areas unsafe, and preventing future growth. Preventative strategies can help developing cities adapt to changes in markets during growth and allows the community to be more invested in its development.

Larger scale efforts have their place in the development of a city, but small community based improvements are now seen increasingly as a way to facilitate more substantial movements. This approach to growth allows a host of entrepreneurs to test new ideas and uses before not, these actions are commonly referred as guerilla urbanism, pop-up urbanism, D.I.Y. urbanism, tactical urbanism and temporary urbanism.

The aim of this type of development consists in locating and cultivating existing architecture, infrastructure, social and economic resources, in actively drawing on the citys urban potential and linking them with the citys overall interests and concerns. To consciously implement and cultivate temporary uses, urban development must happen in phases with moments of informal activation synchronize temporary development with formal planning processes build very dynamic relationships promote community foster innovation The Temporary City, Urban Pioneers,

This means improvements to local roads, phased opening of some routes throughout the site, and improved drainage. Improvements to the circulation network will facilitate earlier redevelopment of vacant or underused sites locally and help remove blight effect associated with former lands.

Phase one is a catalyst, establishing vitality in downtown Longwood and providing thriving public spaces for the community. Residents and entrepreneurs will be able to utilize to experiment with various temporary uses and activities. Various incentives provided by different activist groups and the city help support temporary urbanism efforts within the community. Networks start to form between different groups and begin to establish a direction of development which to issues in the city. Longwood will respond to uses that best help meet the needs of immediate users in this area during phase one of construction.

Through trial and error, developers feel more return of investment after completing downtown Longwood. During growth, the community has more momentum in terms of how invested they feel in the development of Longwood and how passionate they are about being involved in its growth. Phase two is more about facilitating the intial growth into a framework that will continue to establish downtown Longwood as a great destination in the city and surrounding areas, now and in the future. Furthermore, a commitment to attract the surrounding areas through urbanism to inform development in Longwood. Through new development, sometimes consolidated from temporary uses in phase one, new users can be supported in the high density city center of Longwood. by providing the community and entrepreneurs with spaces space will also keep informing what future phasing can be. 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 SunRail Station Station Plaza Public Deck Pop Up Vendors Box Park Temporary Store Fronts Open Space Proposed Parking by Dix.Hite Bus Stops

New development is informed by the temporary uses experimented with in phase one. These could vary in land-use mix and density depending on current market trends but should continue to have services previously provided to intitial users during phase one of contruction, in liue of new needs from existing and new users. The SunRail surface parking and off-street parking will continue to support the stations park and ride service. zones and off-street parking can be used to implement different temporary uses that activate sidewalks along new development.

Phase two of Longwoods development has new growth that brings in new users and new needs. With more people and density, social dynamics become increasingly complex, making development harder to respond correctly to the needs the establishment of uses necessary in future development.
