Thought exercise

Think of startup village along state line road or the Biotech Venture Accelerator (way out at K-7/-10) but imagine it was downtown and it was new construction in a multi-story building. Now let's say it's a multi-use building with residential and commercial aspects too. Making it a live-work space.

The project needs to be physically appropriate for downtown, profitable for the builder, a place geeks want to live and work, that banks will fund, and it follows city code.

How do you design it? What goes into the building to make it work?
