an approach that has been formalized in urban design literature as “shared use”. The photographs on this page illustrate the way in which paving patterns, rather than curbs, can ‘zone’ the street for shared use between pedestrians and vehicles. This approach has been adopted at Downtown Crossing, primarily for the shopping environment. The exhibit is the result of the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) teaming up with the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, according to a news post on the BRA’s website. The model, which goes permanently to the Boston Society of Architects’ Atlantic Wharf space in December, is offered as a means of easing public discourse on urban.

Proposals in by the state and in by the Boston Society of Architects suggested that most of the land should be used for mid-rise buildings. But in , the Boston Redevelopment Authority's "Boston " plan called for 75% of the land "to be developed as a series of parks and urban plazas.".   As part of the Philadelphia Department of Planning and Development, the Philadelphia City Planning Commission (PCPC) is a bridge between the public and the government.. We guide investment and growth in Philadelphia. The goal is to create neighborhoods that are well-connected, affordable, and desirable places to live and work.

In scope, the studio will include overall planning proposals for all or part of the study area, more specific urban design proposals for particular redevelopment opportunities within the area, and urban-architectural proposals for specific building scale projects, including incorporation of the re-use of older, disused facilities. The Midtown Boston neighborhood is the area of Downtown Boston between “Downtown Crossing” and the Theater District. It abuts the Boston Common and is commonly referred to as either “Downtown Boston” or “Downtown Crossing.” See other Midtown/Downtown 3 bed condos for sale. See other Boston luxury condo buildings.
