The 1/2 mile, $3.6 million streetscape renovation helps the City of Paramount re-envision the character of their downtown, improving walkability and reinvigorating the public realm. Reducing traffic lanes to accommodate widened sidewalks, the team utilized a "kit of parts" bringing a positive impact to the pedestrian experience. Streetscape improvements included a parklet, dining paseo, bulb-outs, street furniture and other landscape and urban design elements.
To support the revitalized boulevard the design team also evaluated opportunities for adjacent property improvements.
