Redevelopment of the existing downtown public plaza located in the 100 block of West Broad Street between the Hunan Café and Hot N Juicy Crawfish eateries, is planned as part of the City's 2017-2021 Capital Improvement Program. Funding for the project was provided by a grant from the City's Economic Development Authority. The project will include landscaped and hardscaped areas with built-in and movable seating for open air performances, dining, and special events. The revitalized plaza will help continue to activate the downtown area with pedestrian traffic, provide positive economic impacts to local businesses, and create a versatile space for everyone to enjoy in the heart of the City.
Design commenced November 2016. Construction is scheduled to start the first quarter of 2018, with completion by summer 2018.
The project is currently in the Construction Document design phase.
