Kansas City’s First Parklet
June 26, 2013
Confluence and Structura, Inc. collaborated to create Kansas City’s first “Parklet”, designed as an urban intervention to transform an on-street parking space into a vibrant pedestrian amenity.· view full ·
It was officially unveiled on June 7, 2013 as part of the Crossroad Art District’s First Friday event. Located in front of YJ’s Snack Bar at 18th and Wyandotte, the project incorporates wood decking, bench seating and landscaping that expands the sidewalk experience.
The improvements are scheduled to be in place throughout the summer until Labor Day – at which time it will be dismantled and removed. The team is already scouting potential locations for future parklets. For more information, visit http://crossroadsparklet.wordpress.com/
