Torti Gallas + Partners was commissioned by the City of Seaside to create a highly sustainable and implementable TOD plan, undertake a corridor study, and create a new form-based zoning ordinance that included architectural design regulations.
The 85-acre site is envisioned as a walkable, mixed-use community that serves the needs of residents and visitors alike. Campus Town is designed to capitalize on the positive momentum of existing and emerging local developments throughout the former Fort Ord. Bolstered by the continued growth of California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) along with ongoing public infrastructure improvements across Monterey Bay, Campus Town connects and expands upon these nodes of activity by creating a vibrant network that links and supports the region at large. The site connects with the Main Gate development in the northwest and with CSUMB’s 6th Street hub in the northeast, thus extending the economic opportunities throughout Campus Town and beyond.
Torti Gallas also led a week-long public charrette to maximize optimal community engagement.
