Kennedy Plaza Wins BSLA Design Award

We are excited to announce that our work with the city of Providence and Rhode Island Public Transportation Authority (RIPTA) for Kennedy Plaza received a Merit Award for Design by the Boston Society of Landscape Architects. 

Kennedy Plaza is once again a space for pedestrians. By removing the interior bus lanes and pushing the bus berths to the periphery the pedestrian space was doubled making it a true “plaza” in scale and character. The design deploys long groves of trees and a contemporary paving palette to reinforce the Plaza as a place of prominent scale functioning as a venue for events and festivals during non-peak ridership and comfortably for individuals catching the bus.

Thank you to the BSLA for recognizing the quality design solutions that can be executed with a limited budget and all who made this project possible.
