TRADITIONS MASTER PLANNED COMMUNITY
Location: Dayton, Nevada
Traditions Master Plan envisions a full service community where residents can live, work, recreate, and conduct commerce without leaving the development. The Town Center is intended to establish a main street presence and is the symbolic center of the community, along with the Main Lake and the Community Center, all designed to be intimate and pedestrian friendly.
The Community Center is intended to be a focal point of the community with indoor-outdoor recreational amenities.
The Main Plaza is a central focus and transit hub at Traditions. The buildings surrounding it and the streets will reflect a more upscale utilitarian approach as befitting its close proximity of a lake, recreation area, historic park and Highway 50. The overall scale of each plaza node is that of the village cluster, with unique gathering spaces for outdoor dining, entertainment and reflection. It binds the community with its own sense of place complementary to the history and tradition of Dayton.
Meant to reflect a modern visitor’s center with reminiscent touches of local mining and farming industries, the Traditions Visitors Center expresses modern details and commercial facade for Traditions’ new village and town center. Inviting pedestrian entries and full-height storefront glazing on the two street-facing sides, allow for maximum street visibility of the interior and visitor/realtor/builder amenities inside.
Amenities include interactive information stations and displays, a large topographic model table with an interactive way-finding program, a lounge area, wi-fi access for visitors, home builders displays, community events exhibits and a large upstairs office space.
