Six large development projects, each ranging from 1,000 to over 3,500 residential units, and a number of smaller projects are in the early stages of development. One of the larger projects, the Westphalia Town Center, envisions approximately three to five million square feet of commercial development. The planning concept for Westphalia promotes:
