Working closely alongside the community, Baskervill is transforming the under-utilized 17th Street Farmers’ Market into a usable and lively outdoor community “living room.” The design focuses on creating a pedestrian-oriented and vibrant plaza that will serve as a gathering place for all, from urban professionals and young families to senior residents and tourists. The design features innovative landscaping, an interactive fountain, and seasonal light displays. The market will support mixed-use business development, and existing restaurants surrounding the plaza’s perimeter will be given additional space for outdoor dining. Storefronts that are currently vacant will become pop-up galleries for local artists, benefiting the arts community while highlighting the storefronts’ spaces to potential investors. Well-designed and expertly placed kiosks will provide contextual information to the market’s visitors, such as nearby attractions, trails, and sites. The project is ongoing, with future community meetings taking place to finalize the city’s design vision.
