Creating walkable, urban, human-centered neighborhoods in the Granary District.
We had a great turnout and a great meeting on the evening of the 26th at the Pickle Factory to discuss the final design and mission statement of Granary Row.
Granary Row came out of the week-long Granary District Crowdourced Charrette held at the end of April as a response to how we can use existing infrastructure more efficiently, while creating a vibrant street that brings many people down to the Granary while serving the needs of those here already.
We started with presenting the Granary Row mission statement to get feedback. It reads:
This mission statement was universally accepted by those in attendance.
Now to the design of Granary Row:
We tweaked the original design a little bit and this what the final design looks like:
(700 S. btwn 300 and 400 West. From left to right, residential units, gardens, container commercial space, beer garden, container retail space, neighborhood stage/ plaza, container commercial space, gardens, container restaurants with seating on top, food cart space)
It helped that we did a dry-run for Granary Row at the Block Party II.
We also looked at precedences for other container developments:
(Cashel Street in Christchurch, NZ)
(Delkab Market, Brooklyn NY)
You can find the Granary Row Pinterest board with more ideas and precedences, here.
So the next steps are:
So what does everyone think? Still onboard?!
