Second Street Arts District, Austin, TX
The revamping of Second Street is part of the city's Great Streets program, which was created to encourage pedestrian and bike traffic in downtown Austin. The great streets program has complemented development, spawned restaurants, and spurred nightlife.
Working with local artists, city representatives, and local committees, Copley Wolff Design Group developed a master plan followed by a two-phased construction package. CWDG collaborated with several local artists to design site specific installations at each intersection, establishing an artistic spine that will support future businesses as well as create a pedestrian connection between the New City Hall and the Convention Center Complex.
