Conceptual design and implementation strategy for streetscape, open space, and mixed-use redevelopment opportunities, focused on increased connectivity, improving the pedestrian experience, and spurring private investment.
REA prepared the Greenwood Downtown Development Plan which provides detailed design concepts, project definition, and implementation strategies for the revitalization of the downtown core. Known locally as the Old Town area, this was the commercial center to the community of over 50,000 residents just south of Indianapolis before the creation of a regional mall in the mid-1960’s.
Upon completion of the Plan, REA has continued to work with the City to implement several projects, including new streets and roadway infrastructure, park improvements, and trail connections. Current projects include a road-diet/multimodal streetscape project along Madison Ave.; construction of a new multimodal street named Surina Way to connect Madison and Meridian Streets; Pleasant Creek Trail which connects Surina Square and Old City Park; streetscape enhancements to Main Street from Meridian to Madison and Emerson Ave. from County Line Rd. to Main St.; and the redesign of Old City Park. REA is leading the design and implementation of all of these projects and our consultant teams include both CrossRoad Engineers and VS Engineering.
