Supermarket led mixed use developments: anyone have any good examples?

I'm sure that you're all familiar with the conventional supermarket being a box surrounded by acres of parking, blank facade walls and delivery yards.

I'm looking for some good precedents of mixed use supermarket led developments from across the world as part of my urban design thesis reserach on supermarket led regeneration.

My aim is to propose a design for the comprehensive mixed use redevelopment of a neighbourhood town centre in the North East of England led by a supermarket development between 2,000 and 4,000 m2 (20,000 sq ft and 40,000 sq ft). However, I'm struggling to find any good precedents that will inspite me to develop a creative design.

A lot of schemes that have been developed, fall short, in my opinon of integrating a wide mix of uses but I'm sure that there must be good examples either in the UK, Europe or across the wider world.

Hence, if you know of any good examples, i'd love to know. It would really help with my fruitless search to find a good precedent that reflects the neighbourhood / small town centre level.

Many thanks in advance.

Likely one of the best would be on the street where I live. The old arena Maple Leaf Gardens (the previous storied home of our Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team before they moved to the Air Canada Centre) is being redeveloped around a huge supermarket on the main floor. Above it is a full ice rink for hockey. Here are some links to this rather interesting and innovative $60 million dollar project:

http://officesearchtoronto.com/2010/...novation-pics/

The Maple Leaf Gardens is practically a shrine to our hockey-mad city, in the same way as Madison Square Gardens is to NYC. Demolishing it after the professional hockey team was relocated to the new Air Canada Centre was simply NOT an option.

We have in Northern Frankfurt a city quarter development called Riedberg which will have about 15000 inhabitants and they built a neighbourhood center in form of a mall which consists mainly of two large supermarkets of different price levels a Rewe and a Aldi market.
In addition to the supermarkets there are some smaller shops of everyday necessities like a drugstore, bakery, bank, barber, café and so on.
The center is quite attractive and the development of the area seems to go much faster since it's built.

Some pictures on a German forum (from 2009):
http://www.deutsches-architektur-for...edberg-Zentrum

This is a small website about the center (the last picture is something else), unfortunately only in German:
http://www.riedberg-ffm.de/riedbergzentrum_de.html

I hope this will be some inspiration for you.

Depends on exactly what type of project you want. Seattle has tons of them, generally not with huge density but rather moderate density.

The biggest is 2200 Westlake with Whole Foods, edge of the CBD, topped by three highrises: http://www.vulcanrealestate.com/Temp...x?contentId=74

Uwajimaya Village with Uwajimaya, a "pan-Asian" local supermarket chain, in Chinatown / International District on edge of Downtown, topped by five(?) levels of woodframe housing. http://www.uwajimayavillage.com/

The Lumen has a QFC supermarket, near the Space Needle, with three or four levels of housing over the store and below-grade parking. http://www.seattleurbanliving360.com...lumen-seattle/

Ballard on the Park, also QFC, about five miles outside CBD, eight levels. http://seattlepostglobe.org/2009/06/...y-thanksgiving

Safeway on 23rd, two miles outside CBD, probably six levels. http://www.centraldistrictnews.com/2...tarbucks-again

(that's probably half of the better ones.)

Might not be exactly what you're looking for, but in a suburb north of Stockholm they're building housing blocks with commercial spaces on the ground floors on what used to be a huge parking lot next to a big shopping mall. This is to create a more vibrant inner city life style in the area.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=3252

In Bangkok there's plenty of smaller "community malls", usually with, or next to, a bigger supermarket (like Tesco) as the main "attraction". Most of these are quite pleasant outdoor malls with lots of greenery, restaurants, independet shops, beauty parlors etc. Some are bit tacky in appearance while others actually look pretty nice.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1385108

I know there's plans for a new community mall in central Bangkok which also will contain housing, but i cannot find a link to the project.

Not sure if this counts since the building is pre-existing but in this example the lower level is occupied by a supermarket while the upper floor is residential.





This example is located in the French Quarter neighborhood of New Orleans.

Skybridge in the Greektown neighborhood of Chicago is a notable example of what you are talking about. Was completed in 2003 and is 421 ft designed by Perkins and Will.

http://www.perkinswill.com/work/skybridge-.html




http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skybridge,_Chicago

Skybridge is a high-rise luxury condominium located in the West Loop of Chicago. It won the 2003 bronze Emporis Skyscraper Award. [2] The base of the building is home to a Dominick's grocery store. The building climbs to 38 stories, while the top two are home to the penthouses. The 36th floor boasts a workout facility for tenants and a roof-top garden space. Designed by Perkins+Will, this is the tallest building West of the Dan Ryan Expressway, and due to the setback from the city offers one of the nicest panoramic views of the skyline as seen from the West.

An elevator actually serves the Harris Teeter store directly from the apartments above.

I'm always curious when people start these threads asking for info, and then never participate in the thread after that point!

You can find them in every European city. they usually take up the lower floor of a whole block, even inside historical buildings.

Most Dutch supermarkets are inside building blocks. Typical configuration is a façade to the street, and a small street bringing you to a parking space and distribution location behing the building inside be building block.
