Streetscapes

The new streetscape design was commissioned by the DC Department of Transportation to implement the new design guidelines of the Mount Vernon Triangle Public Realm Design Report. Achieved in collaboration with CH2MHill Engineering, the design restores the generous public pedestrian promenades and the ample shared urban green spaces that were part of K Street’s historic character. It includes large planting areas that serve a storm water management function as well as public plazas intended to be a hub for public gatherings and events in the revitalized streetscape.
