Confluence at Harbor Point

Confluence at Harbor Point acts as a socially equitable beacon of attraction. The project consists of four mix-used and mid-rise buildings. The first building consists of a commercial entity with a fast-food restaurant on the ground floor, a theater on the first floor, and office spaces on the third and fourth floors. The idea to place this large complex towards the end of Harbor Point aims to encourage people to use the available promenade. The three remaining buildings encompass commercial and community spaces such as a gym, market, gallery spaces, and an early education facility. Market-rate housing is flanked by two affordable housing buildings. In fact, two bridges allow a physical connection between the affordable and market-rate housing units, providing communal spaces such as laundry rooms, offices, lounge areas, and outdoor balconies to be shared by all residents. The ground floor and commercial building mimic the industrial outlook that is found in Utica. Since most buildings in the area consist of low-rise buildings, the human scale and relationship to the street are of high importance. The residential buildings incorporate a more minimalistic stucco finishing. As for the market-rate building, the individual balconies and planters are key architectural features.
