Main street was losing ground to big box retail.Attractions were many, yet scattered.Neighboring Skyline Drive was stealing the thunder.

As excitement and momentum grew, gaps began to close.

Balancing local sentiments with metropolitan expectations — a new brand promise was born.

Upscale frontier
