Plaza Midwood getting $1M makeover
Posted on 14 Dec 2011 by Justin Ruckman
The City is about to break ground on a million-dollar-plus pedestrian-centric redevelopment project in Plaza Midwood, starting in January 2012, according to WBTV.
You can download a full PDF of the “Plaza-Central Pedscape Plan” from the City of Charlotte’s website.
Included in the plan are improved pedestrian crossings, improved pedestrian-scale street lighting, bicycle parking, tree plantings, public art installations, even a mid-block pedestrian path connecting Thomas St. and The Plaza, in the place of the current parking lot corridor between Whiskey Warehouse and Thomas Street Tavern.
It remains to be seen how much of this plan will make it into reality, but it’s promising to see this neighborhood getting some infrastructural attention to encourage more walkability.
