About the project
Encore, formerly known as Festival Park Commons, is a project to redevelop three lots Downtown, just south of Town Hall. The project is a result of a request for proposals the Town distributed in 2017, specifically for a new parking structure. As a result of the RFP, Town Council chose a developer to move forward on the project. Confluence Companies acquired that developer.
The project includes a seven-story building that will have residential, retail and office space on the west side, adjacent to Wilcox Street, and a parking garage on the east side, adjacent to Perry Street. The project also will include public plaza just south of Town Hall and an additional plaza space interior to the project along Wilcox Street. The ground floor will contain retail and office space, while floors two through seven will house 124 for-sale condos. The parking garage will have 601 spaces total, 308 of which will be for public use. Construction began in fall 2019.
Benefits for the Town
- Attainable housing near businesses and retail
- Revenue generated through use taxes and permit fees
Current project status
The project is currently under construction. Nearly 300 public parking spots, including eight ADA-accessible spots, are available for use in the Encore garage while construction continues.
A pedicab is providing free rides between the Encore parking garage and Downtown destinations from 4 to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Aug. 7, 2021. Look for the friendly faces in red "We Rock" T-shirts – the pedicab operator and an attendant at the garage, who can help you find your way to a ride or provide information on how to otherwise best reach your destination, will be dressed alike. Work on the garage is expected to be complete by the end of summer 2021.
