The Granary District

Creating walkable, urban, human-centered neighborhoods in the Granary District.

The Granary District, what an area. Full of raw potential, something I can identify with. It has such a beauty underneath the superficiality of grit and grime. Some, including myself, even think the grit and grime adds a certain jenesequa to the charm. For young budding designers, artist and everyone else how do we "preserve" this charm and and hidden luster while moving the area to a more humanly vibrant neighborhood? Honing it to a level of refinement and urbane qualities while still retaining whats attracted many of us there to start with? Above, hopefully, is a fairly decent exemplary project of a reinvention of an old warehouse. Preserved and moved to the present and future.  

What do you think? Lets here what and how you'd like to see the Granary shine.

I think this could be a tremendous model, site specific, to look at for adding to the Granary District in an aesthetic, cost-effective way that will add to the character of the neighborhood by blending, and highlighting the old and the new.

Thank you so much for posting, Quinn!
