Tallahassee City Planning
Tallahassee , Florida

In 1974, the Capitol Center Planning Commission for the City of Tallahassee, FL responded to the growth of its urban center with a conceptual plan for expansion. Dr. Ashkouri, working for The Architects' Collaborative, led the urban planning and design effort. Estimating growth and related development for approximately the next 25 years, the program projected the need for 2.3 million square feet of new government facilities in the city core, with 3,500 dwelling units, 100 acres of new public open space, retail and office space. Community participation was an integral part of the design review, resulting in the creation of six separate design alternatives, which were combined to develop the final conceptual design.
