Just Completed: Main Street Streetscape – Phase One
May 1, 2012
The Main Street Corridor Development Corporation (MainCor) hosted “The Main Event” on May 1, 2012 to celebrate their 30th Anniversary. Attended by staff in our Kansas City office, the festivities included a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Phase One of the Main Street Streetscape project as well as the dedication of the new Thomas G. Patterson Plaza.· view full ·
This multi-phase streetscape enhancement project incorporates new street and pedestrian-scaled light fixtures, decorative site furnishings, and amenities that identify the Main Street Corridor as a unique district connecting Kansas City’s major tourist destinations and historic neighborhoods. This award-winning project has received numerous accolades thus far, including a front page story in yesterday’s edition of the Kansas City Star.
Kansas City Mayor Sly James said he is impressed by the architectural changes in the streetscape. “You changed the way it looks, and because of that you’ve changed the way people feel about it,” James told MainCor leaders. “That is a huge, huge thing to do.”
Confluence is continuing our work designing subsequent phases of corridor streetscape implementation, and we are thrilled with the response and support this exciting project has received in the community thus far.
