Imagine Broadway, from Hildebrand Avenue to East Houston Street, transformed from a busy commuter street to a boulevard with less vehicle traffic, teeming with cyclists riding in protected bike lanes and pedestrians strolling wide sidewalks shaded by tree canopy.
Imagine underground utilities and reduced signage clutter. Broadway at night would be aglow with low energy street lights that strike a balance between safety and sustainability.
Imagine people coming in and out of a growing number of shops, cafes, restaurants and small businesses found along the way. Shaded bus and trolley stops and widely available bike racks make alternative transportation more inviting. The districts signage signals to the local and visitor alike that Broadway, wherever you find yourself on it, is a place with its own distinct identity.
The Rivard Report, Overland Partners, Centro SA and the Pearl have come together to launch a $20,000 Build Your Own Broadway open design competition inviting entries that contribute to the transformation of the street and its environs.
Build Your Own Broadway design competition will focus on three specific challenges:
1. Reinvent the Underpass
2. Public Space Gateways
3. Wildcard Proposal
Finalists will be revealed on the Rivard Report on March 28.
Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 30, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Pearl Stable for the Build Your Own Broadway Awards Night, an evening that will feature finalists in three categories of the design competition taking the stage to present their creative work. A nationally respected keynote speaker will be featured on the program. Judges then will take the stage to announce the winners, including three $5,000 first-place awards, three second-place $1,000 runner-up awards, and a $2,000 Peoples Choice Award.
