The Hyannis Project (2016)
DLTA funds were utilized for additional analysis of the four major retail malls along Route 132 in Hyannis and a comprehensive analysis of surrounding residential neighborhoods connecting this area to the Town’s Growth Incentive Zone (GIZ). The GIZ encompasses the downtown Main Street area, with an emphasis on opportunities for housing production and connectivity between housing and jobs. To visualize the impact of different options, architecturally accurate 3-dimensional models of the existing buildings were purchased to complete a 3D base map of the Greater Hyannis Study Area.
The Hyannis Project outcomes included the GIZ renewal application, and a set of recommendations for reforms and possible infrastructure support to advance the planning and vitality of the Route 132 area.
Route 132 Retail Plaza Redevelopment Strategy (2012-13)
The Town of Barnstable requested Cape Cod Commission RESET assistance to create a redevelopment strategy for the four major retail centers along Iyannough Road: Cape Cod Mall, Capetown Plaza, Festival Plaza, and Southwind Plaza.
The goal of the project was to stimulate the redevelopment of the regional commercial center to improve the area’s form and function, while increasing economic opportunity and the Town’s non-residential tax base. The RESET team conducted an inventory and property assessment, interviewed developers, held design charettes and a zoning workshop, analyzed local regulatory structures, drafted zoning, and outlined a design and infrastructure plan.
