The objective for the parking plan was to create a vibrant Newington Town Center. BL Companies worked with the Town of Newington on this seven urban block plan to create a pedestrian friendly parking area, streetscapes, new Town Green and pedestrian linkages. The goal was to strengthen the Town Center’s identity. BL Companies provided a number of integrated services including site survey, master planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering and construction administration.
The redesign of the parking area incorporated pedestrian friendly walks at the perimeter of the parking and within alleys to connect buildings and create a closed loop for pedestrian walking. New public spaces with architectural features such as a Town green with passive recreation and seating enhanced the pedestrian’s experience and sense of community. A thorough evaluation of the vehicular circulation pattern was also addressed.
