Fenton Marketplace successfully merges the "Big Box" user concept with that of an urban village. The project is walkable and user-friendly and invites people to spend time outdoors. Shoppers can enjoy outside dining while listening to the splash of the fountain or can take a seat next to Mark Twain to finish their Starbucks coffee before heading across to the Public Library. The project's design incorporates 18-ft. stone columns and trellises as part of the building facades. The columns support concert planter bowls 12-ft. in diameter with plantings that are evocative of the vegetation in the San Diego River Valley. The use of stone is intended to pay homage to the site's former use as a quarry.
