An exciting venture, many years in the making, the Baltimore Street Redevelopment Project was born from the need to replace the aging infrastructure beneath Baltimore Street. As the bricks on the Pedestrian Mall would need to be removed to address the infrastructure issues, a street plan was envisioned to concurrently reimagine the Mall by opening it up to one lane of slow-moving traffic and to reconfigure Baltimore Street into an open, safe and multi-functional space which can be easily modified to suit the need at any given time.
After collaboration among many entities, the resulting design created a beautiful yet functional space which will transform Baltimore Street into the community’s much-used central gathering place – a place of pride and identity for local residents and one of the must-see urban spaces for visitors.
The return of automobile and bicycle traffic to Baltimore Street, along with the replacement of aging infrastructure and the addition of 5G internet service will add an attractiveness and vibrancy to our downtown Historic City Center. The project will also serve as a catalyst for reinvestment of both business and upper-floor residences downtown.
