Urban Facelift Project at Springfield Area Merchants and Business & Association meeting
We’re looking forward to presenting the Urban Facelift Project tomorrow night, Thursday July 9th, at the Springfield Area Merchants and Business Association (SAMBA). It’s our hope that Springfield area business owner’s can use the Urban Facelift Project to visualize what their storefronts and buildings can be with an affordable commissioned virtual facelift.
For clients that are looking for a down and dirty and very cost effective visualization of ideas to help with the “curb appeal” of their home or business we offer the virtual facelift. The virtual facelift would show what the structure looks like presently and then give an interpretation of what the project would look like with design elements we think would add value both aesthetically and financially to the residence or commercial building.
For business owner’s unable to commission someone for this service at this time we’ll also be giving an introduction to Google’s free Sketchup program along with a quick lesson on how to import a photograph of their current building using Sketchup’s PhotoMatch tool. This tool allows them to model and see what their building would look like with material/color changes and the addition of signage and other elements. Essentially allowing them to do their own Urban Facelift Project.
A brief mission statement from SAMBA’s website:
The mission of SAMBA is to enable the Springfield neighborhood to be the most convenient, clean and safe place in Jacksonville to live, work and play.
Additionally, we aim to utilize Springfield’s aesthetic character and proximity north of the downtown core to attract day and night time shoppers, cultural and entertainment enthusiasts, patients, residents and tourists from all over the world.
