Aspects of New Urbanism we incorporated to bring village living to Morgan Crossing include:
• Walkability & connectivity
• Mixed-use & diversity
• Character & public spaces
• Architecture & design Walkability & Connectivity
Remember that part about ‘getting around without going anywhere’? Well that’s made possible by the many distinct and pedestrian-friendly streets that go through and around the village. Four distinct side pathways at Focal Point, West Paseo, East Paseo and Central Plaza connect to different parts of the village. It’s easy to get from place to place within a 5-minute walk. Mixed-use, Diversity and Public Spaces
Boredom has no place at Morgan Crossing. A huge spectrum of over 60 shops, services, restaurants and recreation facilities have been created to work with every aspect of your life.
It also houses a variety of public spaces or common areas where community events, festivals and live entertainment can take place such as Central Plaza, Inner Circle and Focal Point. Lively Main Street in the Central Plaza serves as the village’s centre; a lively gathering place and entertainment hub.
Character, Architecture and Design
The village at Morgan Crossing features contemporary furnishings, floral displays and broadleaf evergreen trees to give year-round interest and character to the landscape of the village. It is a warm, friendly village atmosphere due in no small part to its low-rise buildings café seating, floral displays, street vendors, performers, buskers and other events.
Each building, including the retail shops, has its own look and façade to create each space as a unique part of the village. You could call it the anti-strip mall. Every bit of the character, architecture and design of Morgan Crossing is here to build a vibrant social atmosphere.
As is often the case, not every element of new urbanism could be included in Morgan Crossing. In this instance this is primarily due to the transportation options in the area and the existing options for employment and worship already in South Surrey.
