Sustainable Woodard Plaza receives funding

February 21, 2013

The TGDA led sustainable plaza project for the Chicago Department of Transportation is moving forward to construction. The project involves the closing of a small, under-utilized arterial street in order to transform the space, currently a mass of pavement with scarce vegetation, into a pedestrian-friendly outdoor space. The urban green space utilizes innovative stormwater management techniques, which are incorporated into the details of the planters and public gathering spaces. Stay tuned for more developments.
