Market Street Plaza and Streetscape

The sidewalk along Market Street was especially wide at this location and was begging to become something more. HWC worked closely with the city to develop a plaza space and streetscape that would recognize the history of the area while providing a contemporary feel. The custom light poles were designed to model attributes of a set of columns constructed during the centennial celebration in 1913. The roof lines of the historic market structure inspired a new arch in the median. The addition of linear wooden picnic-style tables and a simple landscape palette provide just the right amount of functionality and warmth.
