Current Projects

Over the past year we have been working on plans to turn the vacant parcel adjacent to City Hall (former Service Merchandise site off of Nankin Blvd.) into a programmable community gathering space/park.  This project is the continuation of the vast investment in this district including the relocation of City Hall and Fire Station 1.  The city’s goal is to create a City Centre District which will provide opportunity for future development and provide an anchor for new and existing businesses, while providing an amenity for residents, employees and visitors that encourages them to connect with the community. Below is an animation which shows our working concept of the park components.
