King Street Corridor

The King Street corridor provides an impactful gateway statement into Franklin. Main project elements include entry towers with vertical storyboards made of color-changing glass, a planted boulevard, trail amenities with nodes reflecting community history, and custom shade structures. All elements are connected by strategic lighting and landscaping. Over time, the mature landscape will establish a dynamic linear park experience. HWC lead a talented team of designers and fabricators including Cornerstone, Landtech, Circle Design Group, Smock-Fansler, and GRT Glass Design to implement this transformative project.

North Vernon, IN

City Center Plaza and Streetscape

HWC provided design and construction inspection services for downtown streetscape along 5th Street, 4th Street, Madison Avenue, and O&M Avenue in North Vernon, Indiana. Additionally, HWC was responsible for the planning and design of the City Center Plaza, which sits within the previous right-of-way of Short Street along Madison Avenue. The project not only improved pedestrian and vehicular circulation, but also highlighted community history in design details and added beautification through special paving, street trees, custom metal features, and ornamental lighting.

Seymour, IN

St. Louis Avenue Streetscape

This plaza and streetscape restored an underutilized public space while highlighting the unique character of Seymour. A custom “Seymour” sign incorporates a stanza allowing visitors to become the exclamation point. A paving band and seat wall mimic the shape of a guitar and black metal music notes double as bike racks. An interactive area allows visitors to create their own sound. HWC worked closely with the city and the local Main Street organization to take the project from conceptual design to a built work space.

Princeton, IN

Courthouse Square

Because of the Stellar Communities designation, the City of Princeton was able to improve the streetscape around all four sides of the courthouse square in one project. The HWC design team selected lighting, hardscape materials, and site furnishings that would best compliment the historic courthouse and surrounding facades. Mini plazas with seating were developed within new bumpouts and the addition of street trees and landscaping provides a buffer between the pedestrian spaces and vehicular areas.

Kitselman Trail and Trailhead Park

The Kitselman Trailhead is a complex, multi-phased project that will connect the Cardinal Greenway Trail with the White River Trail while providing a gateway park for Muncie’s east side. HWC had the opportunity to collaborate with Flatland Resources and Land Collective on this project. Two phases have been constructed—a pedestrian bridge and the east side of the trailhead park–and the third is currently under design. This project was funded by INDOT and the City of Muncie.
