Day 2: Horton Project
Since 1870, Horton Plaza has served as a central gathering place. And today, the iconic site has been reimagined as a fully integrated and growth-ready campus. This is the largest reuse development project in the country spanning seven city blocks.
With a previous life as an iconic mall, Horton Project developers are reusing as much of the existing structure and materials as possible. They have created a perfect remix of the property, revising what was vs entirely rebuilding. This effort of reused materials led to a 60% reduction in embodied carbon footprint. Yes, they even ground up existing walkways and then poured new ones using the same aggregate.
