Size: 90,730 s/f As part of greengenuity, Regency Centers, the prom- inent national owner of grocery anchor and commu- nity shopping centers, is committed to becoming better community stewards by operating and developing en- vironmentally friendly shopping centers, and leading the industry through quality and innovation. Belmont Chase embodies this quest. Situated along former rural pastures, Belmont Chase is both destination and oasis, a place where consumers consciously choose to dine and shop. CREATE rose to the challenge to design a center that not only meets LEED Silver standards but showcases a unique selection of new-to-market retail- ers, provides a shopping environment that understands the target audience, is welcome in the community, and elevates everyday errands into an experience. The re- sult, per customer response: Simply delightful.

The projects will increase student capacity from 658 to 1,310 in total. The new construc- tion portions of the buildings are seeking LEED Gold certification. Construction started in 2014 and will be complete by 2017.
