Palisades is a neighborhood retail center located off of Roseville Parkway, a major City arterial street, and across from the Sutter Regional Hospital. The center sits atop the upper bank of a hillside overlooking a creek with access to adjacent City bike trails. The site design incorporates lush landscaping and ample plaza space between buildings. The exterior architecture was designed with a Mediterranean aesthetic while maintaining industry proven standards for building depth, shop space window spacing, and flexibility. The architectural use of simple forms, shapes, and modularity reinforces the use of tilt-up concrete as the primary building skin system. Exterior materials include textured concrete panels, cement plaster, wood accents, ornamental metal, fabric awnings, tile veneer, and ornamental pedestrian and site lighting. The colors are of rich earth tones of beige, tan, and brown.
