Bosque de las Araucarias, Tijuana BC

The framework plan for this master planned community on Mesa de Otay establishes a circulation system which distributes the diverse program into a grouping of sensible districts with meaningful open spaces and well defined buildings. The high spine boulevard (Paseo de las Araucarias) contains regionally appropriate uses – a medical center, NAFTA related businesses, a conference hotel and convention and expo center, and specialty retail and restaurants. The boulevard also serves to connect the area’s two principle thoroughfares to the mesa, thereby making a seamless transition into the existing urban realm. Moreover, the adjoining avenues, streets, and roads further distribute residential neighborhood programs while creating visual connections to surrounding geographical features.
