Park East Freeway Corridor Redevelopment Plan
  • Negative aspects of the existing spur:
    • “over-designed”
      • Elevated freeway
      • 3 lanes of traffic in both directions
    • Auto access to downtown/neighborhoods was limited to only two exits (like the sparse hierarchy)
    • Both a real and symbolic barrier separating downtown from the newly revitalizing neighborhoods to the north
    • Freeway spur “blighted” 64 acres of land, artificially depressing land values, not the “best and highest” use
    • Dominant land use adjacent to the spur was surface parking lots
the plan
THE PLAN

1. Tear down the spur, and then…

2. Rebuild the street grid

  • Multiple routes into downtown and neighborhood

3. Construct pedestrian scale and monumental boulevard as “gateway” to downtown where the spur once existed

4. Free-up 64 acres of developable real estate

5. Re-weave the fabric of downtown into the fabric of the neighborhoods creating the unified urban texture

6. Develop the land, Increase the tax base

7. Capitalize on the emerging downtown housing boom

8. Create three “urban districts” each with it’s own identity

9. Re-weave the River back into the fabric of the city, increase access to it, and elevate it to a natural and public amenity.
