We all know that buildings have to be connected to roads.

Build the road and place your buildings along it.
Now bulldoze the road and replace it with the slightly skinnier road.
Tadaa now you have some space to work with. I will just fill it with a plaza, but if you want you could place trees down first.
Now if you wanted more space than this, you can just do it like this:
That's all. Have fun!
