Shadley Associates is working with the City of Lawrence on the creation of an urban plaza and improved streetscape along a segment of Union Street. The project includes sidewalk replacement, curb realignment, pedestrian scale lighting, tree canopy installation, and more convenient crosswalks to provide the pedestrian with a clearer sense of safety and improved aesthetics. Included is a small plaza known as Warehouse Square, where a building was removed. The design is based on curvilinear shapes that help to remove the user from the rigidness of the surrounding buildings, and provide a pleasant refrain from everyday life. Curvilinear seating walls, picnic tables, and modern site furnishings add character and comfort to this space. This project was developed in compliance with MassDOT requirements and the construction began in 2015.
