Funded in part by a National Park Service Preserve America grant, this design proposes a vision for the future of the four-block Fourth Avenue Cultural Corridor in downtown Edmonds. The project was conceived to advance cultural tourism and economic development by connecting the commercial core to the Edmonds Center for the Arts. The design:

- Incorporates Low Impact Development (LID) into a curbless streetscape

- Provides human-scaled multimodal connections

- Serves as the catalyst for urban revitalization

SvR worked with the City and stakeholders to develop schematic designs for this four-block corridor to improve the pedestrian experience; bring attention to the City’s historic assets along this corridor; and incorporate art, wayfinding, and informational signage.
