inPLACE Design founder Dustin Watson discussed placemaking, retail, entertainment, and mixed-use development with Blake Cordish of The Cordish Companies on June 15th. A key take away from the Baltimore Retail Restaurant and Mixed Use Mania was that mixed-use projects require an investment in the public space to ensure a great “place” is created that produces the experience to attract an increasingly distracted customer.

At Bisnow’s Baltimore Retail and Restaurant: Mixed-Use Mania! Speakers offered five lessons on how to design, develop, and execute retail and restaurant deals in Baltimore.
