About Community Based Development
Designed for people in the spirit of New Urbanism, the Mason Street North project will be developed to support and encourage community by creating an attractive and high quality environment for people to work and live. In addition, Wonderland Hill Development Co. and Wolff/Lyon intend to implement a community based marketing approach that facilitates the involvement of future residents and commercial tenants in creating a vibrant and sustainable mixed-use community.
