Hot or Not of Place: Addison Circle

Remember the instructions. We are looking for the subjective, the emotive. How does the place make you feel? We want to then compare findings of various places around the City with the objective, which I will use LEED-ND as a template.

As background, Addison Circle is a development began in the late '90s in Addison, Texas by a City looking for a new "center of gravity," a place to hold their many yearly festivals. These include: Kaboomtown, Tastes of Addison, Oktoberfest, and others. In order to support those festivities, they decided to build a neighborhood to enjoy and take advantage of the open spaces necessary for hosting festivities. Having banned conventional garden-style apartments, the following imagery shows the end result.

What do you think? Give it a rating and what was done right? What could be better?
