The EastPoint Project on the northeast side of Oklahoma City is a reimagined outdoor mall given new life by the collaboration between the architects at Gardner, the developers at Pivot Project and the City of Oklahoma City. The east side of OKC has seen a lack of investment as a result of redlining and segregation that dates as far back as 1915.

EastPoint aims to be a catalyst, to encourage public and private developers to invest in the east side, and to inspire the community to envision what the neighborhood could become by rebuilding, rehabilitating, and infilling empty lots.

As a product of the partnership between Gardner, Pivot Project, the City of OKC, and the community of the east side, EastPoint hopes be the first of many new developments where ownership is a part of the leasing agreement, so that east side business owners to have the opportunity to hold equity in the real estate to which they help give value.

The AIA holds an annual video contest every year. A challenge to which they give contestants just a few months to make a film based on their prompt which, "...highlights the ways architects have collaborated with civic leaders to build resilient and sustainable communities." Participants produced three- to five-minute documentary films for a chance to win the contest.

The Eastpoint Project is the winner of the Grand Prize. Selected by a consortium of established professionals in the film and architecture world.
