Polo Square is designed to bring a new, vibrant atmosphere to the Coachella Valley, creating a community retail core and identity to the city of Indio. It will feature landscaped, tree-lined setbacks and widely-spaced towers within a phalanx of lower-rise modern shops and two-tier parking. All will be built along a central spine with heavily landscaped interior breezeways, courtyards and fountains. Intimate patio areas will be placed throughout to offer comfortable year-round places where people will enjoy meeting and dining. Easy transportation will be provided by a tramway, encouraging shoppers to explore this almost 1 km long lifestyle center end to end.
