Monument Circle

Indianapolis, IN

A vision to transform the Circle City’s iconic, historic public space and its surrounding district as a thriving, vibrant center for year-round activity while preserving its relevance and identity for future generations.

REA’s work has included facilitation of a four-day charrette with significant district stakeholders, businesses, institutions, and City and State officials. The focus of the charrette was to craft a vision for the revitalized Monument Circle District comprised of the historic Circle and the intersecting streetscapes of Market and Meridian Streets.

Proposed design features include curbless brick and graniteĀ streetscape, increased pedestrian space to accommodate programming and sidewalk cafes, custom lighting/sound/utility/wifi elements, multipurpose market /event pavilions, conversion of fountain basins into engaging spray plazas and outdoor dining areas, green stormwater management, and new trees and perennial plantings.
