Washington Street: Cathedral District

Bismarck, ND

Services provided on this project:

Landscape Architecture Overview:

The concept for Washington Street was derived from several public design charrettes, as well as individual interviews with residents of the historic Cathedral District. The final concept embraces a minimalist approach to the street widening with careful attention to retaining the trees and down playing the scale of the widening by utilizing concrete pavers for the turning lane. Pedestrian scale lights and historic markers embracing the architectural character of the district were employed to give scale and character to the improvements. The historical markers highlight significant neighborhood elements and events and add to the texture of the neighborhood.
