The heart of Las Estrellas will be Plaza de las Estrellas, the hub of the community. This lively commercial district will be the perfect home for service-oriented businesses that cater to residents' needs. Based on a traditional New Mexico-style plaza, it will be a neighborhood gathering place where residents sit and chat with each other or celebrate festive occasions. With cozy courtyards and intimate plazuelas interspersed throughout, Plaza de las Estrellas will provide comfortable and welcoming resting spots where neighbors can meet, close to home.
We are offering a series of 4 design workshops that allow the Las Estrellas neighbors to participate in the design of The Plaza de Las Estrellas. Through a series of public discussions we hope to gather ideas about the types of services, amenitites and features to be included in The Plaza.
