The Corral Village Design was revised four times during the environmental review process to reduce its size and protect scenic views. This is a neighborhood-serving shopping village, not a strip mall. It is also the county's first, new-construction green LEED commercial project and one of the first in the state.
The final site plan reduces the overall project size to less than 100,000 square feet, breaks up the square footage into 10 separate buildings, moves all buildings at least 100 feet away from the frontage roads, lowers building heights, breaks up parking areas, and creates landscaped berms and vegetated islands within the parking areas.
