PRIMARY RETAIL “STREET”

Major International Theme Parks
PRIMARY RETAIL “STREET”

The “Main Street” of the Theme Park takes its design cues from the livelihoods of the fictitious characters that work in their Americana-Themed historic downtown.   There is a bakery, a confections store, a bank, a dress shop – all the amenities necessary to support the vocations of these popular cartoon characters.  Each facade is based on a unique “theme” which helps tell the story of the “Main Street” that is the introduction to the Theme Park itself where the famous “Storybook Castle” can be seen in the distance directly on axis.

Donnie worked for a world-renowned international themed entertainment company with Cotton-Fontana Architects for a 5.5 billion-dollar theme park in Shanghai, China. Donnie served as the Senior Project Manager for an eventual 50-person firm and worked on three different themed “lands”.  Donnie spent most of the first six months of 2013 in Shanghai assisting the local architectural firms, referred to as L.D.I.’s (Local Design Institutes), with the completion of the Construction Documents Phase of the project.
