The Rookwood Exchange was a joint venture of Miller Vallentine Group and Jeffrey R. Anderson Real Estate. The project consisted of a mix of 235,000 square feet of retail, 400.000 square feet of office and 220 residential units wrapped around two 8-story parking structures for 2000 cars. The wrapped parking structures form the core of the development with the streets forming a cross, connecting to both I-71 and the adjoining shopping center, Rookwood Commons. Each of the buildings - though of differing scales, construction and use, find a common theme through an abstraction of the kinds of architectural terracotta tile manufactured by Rookwood Pottery from whence the development received its name.
