As a result of the proposed street closing, extension, and reconfiguration, the residual street spaces become available for the creation of pedestrian amenity spaces connected by a series of bump-outs and decorative crosswalks.The concept plan recommendations include:1) a widened sidewalk with allee of street trees, planters and seating as an visual extension of the St. Mary’s Park, 2) a neighborhood gathering space between buildings with benches, seating, stage, tables and chairs, and landscaping, and 3) applying green design strategies where possible: water harvesting in the traffic circle, permeable paving for pedestrian space, water quality planting beds, etc.
